More than 600,000 people visit Graceland every year, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States. With Graceland: An Interactive Pop-Up Tour, you'll go behind the velvet ropes for an all-access tour of the Elvis Presley Estate. Eight full-color pop-up spreads feature the mansion's most memorable destinations:
  • The Kitchen: Home of the famous peanut butter and banana sandwich.
  • The TV Room: With three TVs running simultaneously, there's never a dull moment.
  • The Trophy Room: A monument to the King's legacy.
  • The Meditation Garden: Where Elvis and his family are buried.
Along the way, interactive pop-up features allow you to flip through Elvis's record collection,browse the family photo album, open his refrigerator, and discover other hidden surprises. Graceland: An Interactive Pop-Up Tour is the perfect gift for Elvis fans of all ages!

Review:

"For fans without the ways or means to get to Memphis-or who just want to relive their last visit-pop-up master Murphy provides a scream-worthy up-close-and-personal desktop tour of Elvis Presley's famous Graceland estate in this brilliantly low-tech 3-D volume. Stuffed with photos, mementos-in-miniature and other goodies (including a wearable cardboard facsimile of Elvis's trademark sunglasses), this tribute to the King's castle features painstakingly engineered replicas of numerous Graceland sites, including the manse exterior, the living room and music room, the jungle room, TV room and meditation garden. The margins are stacked with insightful text and brief looks at other aspects of Elvis's home life, such as his Tiki furniture, his firearms collection and the U.S. Department of Justice badge he received from President Nixon, which made him an official federal narcotics officer. In her foreword, Elvis's daughter Priscilla shares his pride in the home, describing it as a place 'where he felt comfortable, secure and happy'; this intricate, wholly absorbing collectible is sure to make the King's followers feel similarly, giving them a unique opportunity to enjoy Elvis's home from their own living room, jungle room or meditation garden." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"In Chuck Murphy's Graceland, not only can you admire the upholstery in the Jungle Room, you can riffle through Elvis' shield collection and open his fridge — and examine the contents. The last page? His grave." Entertainment Weekly

Synopsis:

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.

Graceland, Tennessee has been talked about, written about and sung about, but never before has such a comprehensive "map" been revealed. Chuck Murphy leaves no stone unturned, and his relentless pursuit of realism vs. myth is outstanding. The reader is whisked away to a world of fantasy and as the pages pop out, the story comes alive!

I'm from Memphis. They should make this book available to everyone that visits Graceland! How else will you understand the King, unless you've gazed through hs gold glasses? No less a person than John Updike recently visited Graceland-he should've had this book! He was both impressed and saddened by the experience-as I'm sure a lot of fans are. With a foreward by Priscilla, you come to understand Elvis' home as a creation out of a child's longing for comfort and security. Long live The King!
