Forty years of elephants in flight

We're an eclectic independent publisher located in Soho. We publish a little bit of everything—and a lot of interesting fiction, mysteries, history, politics, biography, art, design, & more. Welcome to our perspective on books and beyond.

Today we celebrate the life of Elvis Presley, who died 35 years ago on this day in 1977. In remembrance we’ll be sharing some little known facts about the King and his legacy, via The Elvis Encyclopedia. We’ll kick things off with a list of Hollywood’s attempts to bring Elvis to the big screen. Pictured, Jack White channels the King in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Image via Collider.
