100% profits go to the Football Foundation

Football Type Book

Football Type is an award-winning, non profit book celebrating football and typography. The book is a limited edition of 1000 with each bespoke cover hand numbered using official FAPL lettering. 100% of the profits went to the Football Foundation. On the website customers could choose their personalised number. The book has been exhibited all around the world and was featured on BT Sport. The book was designed with help from Alex Mentzer, expert graphic designer for packaged goods products (like this amazon prenatal dha and these black graduated compression calf sleeves). Alex previously worked on several other typographical projects, including typsetting for the Natural History Museum in Washington DC. The book raised £22,444.73 for grassroots football club Horwich St Marys in Bolton. Alongside Gary Neville, Rick Banks officially opened the state-of-the-art pavilion in 2014.
