In Issue Two, we have looked to capture the contradicting rollercoaster of emotions that football can provide, from the incredible highs to the heart breaking lows, with a focus on the mixed fortunes that a variety of sides have experienced over time.
We have looked at some of the giants of the game as well as some of its less well known stories, with articles on Manchester City, AC Milan, Everton and England, as well as CD Cala D’Or of Mallorca and Sassari Torres Femminile of Sardinia, where guest Barley Nimmo shares his incredible photos and experiences following Italy’s most successful women’s team.
With a larger physical size and a host of beautiful illustrations from some incredibly talented artists, the magazine also features a number of interviews and exciting contributions.
We caught up with Cult Kits to discuss their favourite vintage football shirts and spoke to clothing brand Fourteen Admirals about the glory of Italia ’90 and the inspiration behind their designs.
Photographers Leah Lombardi and Harry Myers also share their projects and love of shooting the game on film, whilst we also spoke to Johnny Quinn, frontman of Liverpool band Spinn about all things music and Everton, giving issue two a broad range of original features.
We can’t tell you how much we enjoyed putting it together and are delighted to finally share it with you. Printed on lovely uncoated paper and without a single advert, its simply 100 pages that aim to capture the beauty of the game and something that we hope will give you a lift during this unusual and difficult time.
A huge thanks once again for all of your support!
