Elvis Presley Memorial Card

October 27, 2010

Much more simplistic in its style is this piece for Elvis Presley which is also a token of appreciation from the family.

Desirable to collectors of Elvis memorabilia, it also shows that the cards were still as popular as ever and how the style had changed.

Not showing the usual flourishes, it relies on its use of font and typography to convey its message and it accomplishes that well.
