Elvis Presley purchased the Graceland Mansion in 1957—and half a century later, it remains one of the world’s most popular tourist attractions. In this illustrated pop-up celebration, you’ll embark on an all-access walk through of the house and grounds. Every page features meticulously designed replicas of Graceland’s most famous sites, including:
• The Living Room and Music Room
• The Kitchen and Dining Room
• The Jungle Room
• The Television Room
• The Meditation Garden
And much more. You’ll go behind the velvet ropes and explore private areas of the estate that are off-limits to tourists. Flip through a family photo album. Browse Elvis’s record collection. Change the channels on his television. Peek inside the kitchen cabinets and refrigerator. Produced in cooperation with the Elvis Presley Estate, Graceland: An Interactive Pop-Up Tour is a dazzling tribute to a rock-and-roll legend—and a house that became a U.S. National Historic Landmark.
Chuck Murphy has engineered dozens of pop-up books for children and adults. He lives with his wife, Cheryl, and their chocolate lab, Bosco, in Valley Glen, California. Priscilla Presley is an actress, author, and entrepreneur. She has been instrumental in the development of Graceland since it opened to the public in 1982.
