Match Day by Bob Stanley

Book Description

This collection of covers from official UK football programmes, now available in a pocket edition, symbolizes the golden age of British football. Taken from every league club, from post-war to the start of the Premiership (1992), the book features over 100 teams and 450 colour reproductions. It also includes a broad selection of non-league clubs, and other significant programmes such as the 1966 World Cup Final. Compiled by Bob Stanley (of the band St Etienne) and Paul Kelly, a Roy of the Rovers spirit is portrayed in these cover designs. Colourful graphics and charming illustrations reflect an age of innocence far from the glossy photographic corporate quality they have today.Bob Stanley contributes an introduction that describes his fascination with the humble football programme, his favourite designs, and how the dawn of desktop publishing drew to a close one of the most interesting and previously unrecorded areas of vernacular design, while the distinguished football journalist Brian Glanville has written a foreword tracing the origins of the club programme. This book is sure to appeal to graphic designers and everyone interested in design as well as anyone with an interest in football.
