News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Iola, Wis.—Elvis is one of an extremely small number of American legends continuing to support a multi-million dollar industry, post-mortem. He and related collectibles remain a hunka-hunka burnin’ love for fans everywhere. As his popularity continues to grow with new generations and as older fans cash in their collections, the marketplace is in a constant state of fluctuation. To help collectors establish accurate values, Warman’s has published “Warman’s Elvis Field Guide.” A portable guide of 512 mostly color pages covering memorabilia and records, as well as in-depth features on Elvis’ life, his music and movie careers and his beloved Graceland.
Published by KP Books (formerly Krause Publications Book Division) and edited by Paul Kennedy, “Warman’s Elvis Field Guide” contains price listings for every record Elvis recorded and released. Listings are included with more than 300 photos of records, concert and movie memorabilia and other popular collectibles. Chris Nickson, music journalist and notable author of many celebrity biographies, wrote the features.
Kennedy, an acquisitions editor with KP Books, has edited a number of collectible references and price guides.
