Opening Day 2007

"And a great Elvis head it was! Yes, we'd love to hear the story behind the head with pictures. Please send info to ... We'll all be interested to see how the eyebrow and lips were moved. As we're going to press soon we'll need materials right away. We look forward to seeing them. Congratulations." [Email from an editor]
