"Praytome Publishing" has become famous for its world-wide book and DVD publications such as, “Behind The Image" (in co-operation with Bud Glass Productions) and "Elvis – Adrenaline".
In a very short time, this company has made an extremely positive name in the Elvis World. The expertise of the knowledgeable staff members is evident in the content of their publications.
Elvis fans are the lucky recipients of unpublished photographs, photographs which have been restored by their expert graphic artist and very rare Super 8 footage of Elvis, which has been expertly transferred and enhanced, using state-of-the-art procedures, so as to provide optimum quality to the fans.
Ed Bonja wrote the foreword for Sue McCasland’s book: World’s Best Kept Secret - Elvis live Del Webb’s Sahara Tahoe. Ed has since become a member of the Praytome Publishing team as a fulltime employee and technical advisor.
With his experiences, expertise and special inside knowledge about Elvis and the Elvis history, he can contribute in a unique way to the team’s productions. Additionally, in the context of his work, Ed had a very special, inside view of the world of Colonel Parker. It was the Colonel who invited Ed to bring his camera on tour to take photos of Elvis; so, Ed took nearly 10,000 photographs of Elvis, as well as of other events that took place during the tours.
With the current project, “Multimedia Box Set - Dixieland Delight," Ed has been acting as an advisor, and some of his photos will become part of the artwork for the box set.
Because the “Praytome Publishing" team works on several projects at the same time, the work on Ed Bonja’s own book has already started, with the working title "Elvis on Tour '72 - Covering The Nation".
Being a Praytome Publishing project, it is certain that the pictures will go through a complex restoration process and that the release will not be a regular picture book, but will contain never-before-told anecdotes by Ed, himself.
