De Agostini launches an official Elvis collector’s edition in Germany

January 12, 2012

On January 11th 2012, De Agostini Germany is launching Elvis – Die offizielle Sammler-Edition (Elvis – The Official Collector’s Edition), an amazing new collection of magazines, artifacts, mini-posters and DVDs that, together, create the definitive record of the life and work of the King of Rock 'n' Roll.

Elvis – Die offizielle Sammler-Edition is the ultimate must-have for all German speaking Elvis fans. It has been developed in association with Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc., which has contributed its privileged insight into Elvis’ life and provided photographs for the magazines and the artifacts from its archive based at Graceland.

Fortnightly, the magazine offers insight into the King’s life, from his humble beginnings through to his phenomenal career, his marriage to Priscilla Beaulieu and his untimely death. The collection offers fans the unique opportunity to build a treasure chest of exclusive artifacts, spanning every stage of the King’s life, including his birth certificate, school reports, love letters and family photographs, mini- posters and DVDs.

Each issue in the series includes three (or more) printed artifacts. These include Elvis' personal documents, music and film memorabilia, and awards and landmarks. Holding these artifacts, one can see and feel that they have a truly authentic quality that can only come from reproducing them as closely as possible to the originals held at Graceland. Unrivalled as a collection outside of Elvis' former home, these artifacts build a unique documentary record of Elvis’ life.

With the series comes a fantastic set of mini-posters, reproducing in miniature the original posters from Elvis’ day.

Each issue includes a DVD with Elvis’ greatest movies, concerts and documentaries of the King of Rock 'n' Roll.

Devoted entirely to Elvis, the magazine includes articles explaining key events in the star’s life and career. Illustrated with photographs direct from the archives at Graceland, each issue helps to build a greater understanding of his amazing talent.
