Book Description

6 Jan 2013
Elvis Presley, an American icon, remains unrivalled in American culture: in his music, his cultural impact, and the very chapters of his rags-to-riches life story. More than three decades after his death, Elvis remains a significant presence in worldwide popular culture. Alfred Wertheimer's stunning photographs, collected in this book for the first time, show Elvis in 1956, at the turning point of his career. These are the last images of Elvis before his life was changed forever by television, gold records, and films. Elvis at 21 is an intimate look at the soon to be crowned "King of Rock 'n' Roll" and includes previously unpublished photos as well as widely known classic images.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Best Elvis Book 11 April 2007
By maxson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you only have one Elvis book in your library, or one photography book, let it be "Elvis at 21"...you will never buy a more sumptuous volume. The printing of the images is phenomenal, with wonderful use of gatefolds. It is one of the very few art books I've bought that I didn't balk at the retail price.

Wertheimer's photographs are collectively an artifact of our cultural history. It's amazing to see so many of them gathered together and in sequence. A much smaller selection of this body of work was published about 20 years ago as "Elvis '56"--this was my one-book-in-the-library, even back when I only had a photocopied edition. With this expansion, a whole new king is crowned.

2007 is of course the 30th anniversary of the King's passing. The world should expect a vast onslaught of new and revised offerings on the man. "Elvis at 21" throws down an early gauntlet so firmly, the other publishers might just as well crawl back into their niches.

Buy it, and wear a bib so you don't ruin the pages with your drool.

By S. Viola - Published on Amazon.com
This is the definitive version of all the Wertheimer photo books. This is the only one to own. The photos are famous and now the book should be also. A great one for any Elvis fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis at 21 17 Jan 2007
By J. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Alfred Wertheimer's photos is this book are FANTASTIC! It is a rare treat to be able to see Elvis at this stage in his life... when he was doing what he loved while still able to go in to restaurants, walk the streets, etc. and be recognized and appreciated by people around him, without being mobbed. What a wonderful time to cherish in these photographs.
