"Life defining" is the way I'd describe the quotations, antique drawings,
pictures, and art-works in the new "Elvis Sketchbook" by famed British
Graphics Artist Lee Roy Brown, released in time for the 25th Anniversary of
the death of The True King Of Rock n' Roll
He was much more than that, as this book illustrates clearly to those who
loved him and to those who didn't; or even to those too young to have had
the opportunity to do either.
In Lee Roy's eyes, to know Elvis Presley was to know America, and all of the
good she has stood for since her creation in 1776 in my city, Philadelphia.
He has painted a picture of a country boy whose roots would never disappear,
regardless of his stature , fame or fortune. Here is a portrait of a poor
boy who studied the foundations of Freedom America offers, from the
Declaration Of Independence to the Liberty Bell. From the raw beginnings of
our urban society in the 1700's, through his raw beginnings in the tiny
river-town of Tupelo, Mississippi, the things he learned about America are
detailed in old lithographs and drawings carefully placed by Lee Roy in a
manner that conveys the feelings Elvis must have had growing up. "Love of
Country. Love Of People, Love Of Parents. Respect for all. Equality for all"
(as included in the very unexpected text of this work.) His love of people
and deep sense of responsibility are clearly rooted in the American Eagle
that Lee Roy fly's so fluidly through the pages of Elvis' life..to the civil
war soldier that reminds. "Duty comes far before Fame and Fortune"..turning
Presley's values into two years of hard duty as a tank operator and mechanic
at the height of his popularity, while other stars of his stature chose to
entertain troops, instead of "being one." Everyone he served with respected
his devotion to duty..
There's Elvis the Sheriff (Official FBI Badge No. 1 presented to him by
President Nixon) portrayed as a Harley Motorcycle cop when little Johnny
"makes a mistake." A
touching plaza reference to JFK, (who is quoted in this work along with
Benjamin Rush, Lincoln, and other great leaders and philosophers.)
This book is for the true collector of things of value: a "spiritual" value
not often seen in today's world of "just make it look like you're doing it,"
and electronic answers and desk-top "shortcuts" to "everything.".
It belongs in College libraries, Social-Studies classes, and yes, in the
Library Of Congress for sure, as it's "Americana" illustrations by the
talented minister of Elvis are vital parts of the American Scene, and how
they shaped the life of one of it's foremost citizens.
We're living in difficult times. Lee Roy Brown's "Elvis Sketchbook" may help
get us to where we have to go...with "duty before fame and fortune' leading
