Fiber artists honor Elvis Presley in a collection that is as unique as the King of Rock and Roll himself. The art quilts celebrate his songs, movies, and life in an inspired and creative group of 95 works. Enjoy a wide range of interpretations, from realistic to humorous to abstract. Quilts are accompanied by a mix of memories of Elvis, descriptions of the making of these art quilts, and details about the King, creating a one-of-a-kind treasury for Elvis fans and collectors. As a bonus, Elvis devotees are challenged to test their knowledge in a Name-This-Song visual guessing game.
