For the Love of Football & Typography

It's called "Football Type"


I never thought there would be a day when a book, exploring the history and development of typography in football, would be published. From the hand-stitched jersey numbers in the 1930's to the custom fonts used by football clubs today. 

Designer Rick Banks and writer Sheridan Bird, thought so many people are passionate about football and design but there's never been a book about both, so why not!

Football Type is a non-profit book with only 1,000 limited edition copies, the proceeds will go to the UK Charity Football Foundation to improves its facilities and build communities around England.
