Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For us shirt devotees of what ever persuasion there have been a number of books released over the last few years, dedicated to our favourite subject, history of team colours.

With the sheer size of this, the English language version- there is a Spanish version which to my cost I found first- I was really looking forward educating myself to histories and colours of the great many teams it covers from around the world. But ultimately that is its downfall, it spreads itself to thin.

Why certain shirt designs through the history of bigger club and countries were chosen is very random and at same time to obvious. Of the clubs I do know something about their kit histories are littered with factual errors and why include clubs with graphics that don't include club badges or sponsors logos? Obviously permission was not given and to avoid any IP breaches the drawings are left blank. But seriously they should have been left out altogether! In their blank guise they just look awful. The graphics themselves are what has earned the book its one star, they are good, if not slightly on the darker side on occasion.

To do I book like this is a huge undertaking and that is, in my opinion, where it falls down. Surely smaller more country, league or confederation targeted volumes would have been easier? I won't be using it as any type of reference book, it has frustratingly missed a trick and sadly just doesn't seem to have point to it.

It's ok, but the title is a bit misleading. It goes into full detail of a few classic shirts such as Netherlands, Barca and England, and then the res tot the shirts are merely a picture of 'lesser' teams current shirt. It will be out of date probably already.

Nicely done but very European 18 Jun 2014
By Carlos Lorch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very nicely done and w,ell designed book. The authors have a good command of the subject if your interest is European football. The book would do well with a better balance as the coverage (and importance given) to other areas is thin. When it comes to Latin American football, for example the knowledge base is small.
Still, however, a good balance.

Perhaps a better balance in the next edition!
