Elvis Is Everywhere

Sold by Potter Style
Free sample

Elvis, it seems, is everywhere. And for about three years, Rowland Scherman went looking for him. Elvis Is Everywhere captures this pursuit, in 70 photos documenting the author's travels to Boston, Los Angeles, Nashville, Venice Beach, Orlando, Nag’s Head, Cape Cod, New York, Pasadena, and, of course, Memphis. In all these places was evidence that Elvis lives, at least in spirit, long after his well-mourned death. 

This book is not so much about Elvis as it is about us. The abiding loyalty and reverence of the King’s devoted fans have enabled him to transcend even the most outrageous promotional hype. His image and his name have been absorbed into the language, the landscape, our very culture. Elvis continues to cast his spell on our collective consciousness.

From burlesque show to fashion runway, magazine cover to Internet video, fashion icon and “burlesque superheroine” (Vanity Fair) Dita Von Teese has undergone more strokes of red lipstick, bursts of hair spray, boxes of blue-black hair dye and pats of powder in a month than a drag queen could dream of in a lifetime. Whether she’s dazzling audiences swirling in a towering martini glass in Swarovski-covered pasties and stilettos or sparking camera flashes on the red carpet, one reality is constant: for this self-styled star, beauty is an art. Now, for the first time in her Technicolor career, Dita divulges the beauty wisdom that keeps her on international best-dressed lists and high-profile fashion show rosters in this illustration and photography-filled opus.

"This book is my diary of a period that I would like to share with you all. I hope that there are things in the book that contextualise some of the moments and memories we have all shared together. There are things I address in the book that are very personal to me, things that I have never told anyone, things I still find hard to talk about. It's a part of a journey I'm still on."—ZAYN
