  2. Larger-than-life in talent, Elvis Presley was also legendarily charismatic, a man who left a deep and lasting impression on those who knew him. Blue Suede Shoes is an indirect biography and an all-access pass to the personal world of Elvis Presley, an intimate look at the culture he created and the legacy he left behind through his objects, surroundings, and posse of friends.

Interspersed throughout are the photos and stories of those who were forever touched by Elvis’ legacy. Rediscover the man behind the image through these photographs of the places he lived and recorded, the jewelry and clothing he wore, and even the gifts he chose for friends (and some items that were given to him) and through reading first-hand accounts from those whose experienced his profound generosity. A magnificent gift for fans old and new, Blue Suede Shoes provides a beautiful and insightful look at one of America’s most beloved performers.About the AuthorThom Gilbert is an award-winning photographer and the author of Soul: Memphis' Original Sound, which was featured on NPR.

  4. Why should architects restrict their abilities and creative faculties to buildings and rooms? A closer look reveals that many of them are also active as creators of objects – often of furniture in the context of their own buildings but also of products of all types, independent of their archi – tectural projects. There are even architects who are better known for their product design than for their buildings, such as Philippe Starck for example, a star of the design scene. This book shows how architects translate their architec – tural style into product design or modify it to suit the task at hand. It is fascinating to observe how the vaulted walls in a piece of parametric architecture influence the design of a pair of shoes or how a minimalist building convolu – tion is echoed in a chandelier. The 50 examples presented here convey the remarkable diversity of contemporary architects in the world of product design and reveal how the art of architecture can generate new perspectives in other creative fields.
