A new independent publication project thought up by The Football Crest Index is going to release Volume I of the history behind the football club’s crests.
It is going to be a great project not only for football lovers but also for those passionate about vintage stuff and historical stories of sports. It seems to be genial the project that The Football Crest Index is realizing thanks to the partnership between them and several designers.
As stated by the guys behind this marvelous project, they hand picked 47 designers who support each club to produce original and exclusive artwork to sit alongside their clubs history.
The history behind the football club’s crests. How is the project developed?
The Football Crest Index began a fundraiser through the famous platform Kickstarter. Several followers appreciated the idea to know something more about the history behind the football club’s crests and rapidly funded the project. At this stage, the project is focused on the Premier League clubs. The designers are going to release Volume I featuring the 47 clubs that have graced the Premier League since it’s inception in 1992.
Fans of clubs around the world should not despair. The Football Crest Index is now focusing on the clubs of the British league but on future volumes they would like to cover clubs across the world.
The history behind the football club’s crests. Who is behind this project?
James Kirkup is one of the curators of The Football Crest Index, an independent publication that, as previously stated, is funding its project through a fundraiser platform. Kirkup and his collaborators were hoping to get around 7,000 pounds to start but 20 days before the end of the fundraising already 11,000 pounds were gathered. Having noted the positive perception that people had about their project, Kirkup and Co. decided to put 50 more copies of the book at disposal for those that would be willing to finance the project in the remaining days.
The history behind the football club’s crests is going to be a very interesting way to know something more about the clubs that we are passionate about.
