Football Type 2 is the sequel and revised edition to the award winning book Football Type — a book celebrating the history of football and typography.
From a patchy beginning as strictly identificatory aids, shirt numbers have grown in significance, with players gaining such attachment to the digits on their backs that they become part of their individual brands. The business of designing fonts reflects that and Football Type 2 is a celebration of that creativity as well as the historic stories behind the numbers.
This limited edition version comes with a numbered dust jacket with lettering found within the book using the latest digital print technology.
“Football Type 2 celebrates the typography of the beautiful game.”
It’s Nice That
“Football Type 2 explores the art of football lettering.”
