Football Editions #3 Seeing Red!
Over the past year we’ve featured issues 1 and 2 of Football Edition’s, “a creative platform to appreciate the past and current greats of the beautiful game”. Previously looking at “Icons” and “African Stars”, the third edition takes an angry turn and focuses on players renowned for “Seeing Red!”.
Mike Willows and Wayne Trevor Townsend from Not On Sunday are behind the project, and for #3 they teamed up with illustrator Lawrence Slater who uses two colours to minimally bring to life some memorable moments. The cover takes a type-led approach, seemingly a pattern throughout the series, with MuirMcNeil‘s Rumori Morbidi typeface taking centre stage.
The booklet features a list of boisterous players including Lee Bowyer, Joey Barton, Duncan Ferguson and many more.
“Football comes highly charged. It’s an emotional game. The English Premier League has been blessed with so many great players — and some of the greatest personalities to boot. The red mist has a lot to answer for, giving us everything from the cheeky mischievous troublemaker to the downright criminal. Between them, this eleven could cause some serious damage. That’s if they could keep themselves all on the pitch, of course.”
Number 3 is limited to 200 editions, so act quick and purchase one from footballeditions.com/seeing-red
