The Illustrated History of Football: Hall of Fame [9781780895598]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Welcome back to the imitable work of illustrator David Squires. Most football fans can only dream of pulling on the shirt of their favourite team and running out in front of thousands of adoring fans. Pitch invaders aside, few of us get to experience that adrenalin rush. Of those who do make it as a professional footballer, even fewer realise the giddy heights of success.

In The Illustrated History of Football: Hall of Fame, cartoonist David Squires returns to celebrate those who straddle the game like giants; those talented, determined souls who were juggling tennis balls in the back streets before they could talk. There's more than one way to attain football immortality though, and Squires also turns his comic eye to the mavericks, the pioneers, the forgotten legends and the anti-heroes.

From Pele to Meazza, Maradona to Socrates, you will be taken on an unforgettable journey through the good, the bad and the Hagi.


AUTHOR: David Squires is a Sydney-based artist and illustrator. His work has featured prominently in a wide range of publications, from the Guardian to Pickles magazine. His work focuses on football and his hilarious comics and detailed illustrations cast a critical eye on the beautiful game. His first book, The Illustrated History of Football, was published in 2016. This is his second book.
