From Genesis Publications Ltd wer received this pressrelease on the "Elvis And The Birth Of Rock "book: Genesis Publications are delighted to announce the publication of "Elvis And The Birth Of Rock", a fascinating limited edition of just 1750 copies featuring 78 photographs, including 27 of Elvis Presley himself. Most of these extraordinary photographs are being published for the very first time.
On November 23rd 1956, Elvis performed at the Cleveland Arena and a 17-year-old boy, a keen photographer who worked for his high school newspaper, was invited to photograph him what a break that turned out to be for Lew Allen who, along with Mike McCartney, has signed each copy in the edition.
As a valued subscriber, we would like to offer you the chance to purchase this new publication in advance of more formal announcements being made in the press and on our website. As with previous Genesis limited editions, we will be offering Deluxe copies (numbered 1-350), with a pre-publication price of £395 and Regular copies (numbered 351-1750), with a pre-publication price of £250.
We anticipate a high demand, especially for the Deluxe copies, so would recommend that you return the order form, e-mail us, or call any of the Genesis team, with a 50% deposit to secure your copy.
The publisher's release provides further, detailed information on "Elvis And The Birth Of Rock" including descriptions of the bindings, details of the 'added extras' which come with Deluxe copies and the other subjects covered by the photographs. Printing will start shortly and the first copies should be ready to despatch in time for Christmas.
