Collection of Classic “Match Day” Graphic Designs

by Nicko Margolies

Fuel-Design recently published a collection of classic British football programs, entitled “Match Day.”  The collection, compiled by Bob Stanley and Paul Kelly, includes more than 450 programs spanning the lifetime of the league from 1945 to the inception of the Premiership in 1992.  Though the comprehensive history and ability to relive the sport’s glory days may be the book’s main selling points, there is a wealth of design knowledge to be gained as well.  Particularly where the layouts are concerned.

People often complain that modern, glossy programs lack the spirit and culture shown in these original prints.  Citing the corporate atmosphere of today’s sports as the main culprit in devaluing the beauty and vigor on display in the games of yesteryear.  Not so in this book, where the most successful covers are simplistic, colorful and to the point.  In addition to the stunning visual record, ”Match Day” also includes an introductory essay by Brian Glanville and is now available in a “Pocket Edition” for £15.
