‘68 at 40 is due out on August 6th and will be limited to 1968 hard-cover copies and will include an 8"x 10" photo not used in the book and signed by Binder.
With of the 40th Anniversary of the 1968 special approaching, Binder felt it was time to pen his own book, having read so much on the special that didn't feel right with its director. And when it came time to find a publisher, JAT was Binder's only choice.
Steve explained, "Knowing Joe Tunzi personally and his JAT publishing company makes me very comfortable that I'm in good hands. I have found Joe to be a man of integrity and passion in keeping the Elvis legend alive."
Publisher Joe Tunzi offered these comments, "Being able to publish a book by Steve Binder about the legendary 1968 ELVIS T.V. Special was a dream come true."
Tunzi continued, "This is guaranteed to be one of the greatest books in our vast catalog. Steve is without question brilliant in every sense of the word and one of the most talented and creative minds I ever had the good fortune to work with. Not to mention a true gentleman."
Binder will kick-off the promotional tour for the book with a special appearance in Memphis during Elvis Week 2008.
