Came across this today. UK artist who lives in New York now who creates a piece of art after every West Ham game to reflect the match. Pretty cool way of looking back over past seasons.

 

This is fantastic!

Also picked this up in a a magazine store today. Has some cool art work / photography in tandem with stories about teams comprising of a massive range of back stories.

No idea if this is a regular magazine or a one off. The cover art alone was enough for me to buy it.

I saw this a while back and it doesn't look like there have been any other issues released, so might be a one off.

Looks pretty cool. Is the inside as impressive as the cover?

It's more photographic journalism than illustration. Stories are about 32 different teams around the world. They set the magazine up like a tournament and have a section like panini sticker books. The magazine tells the story of each of the 32 teams, they range from a Mexican resistance team that play in balaclavas, blind football team in the Czech Republic, an all women's football team in Saudi where it's illegal for women to play sport and a women HIV sufferers team in Zimbabwe who hold talks to try and end the stigma around the disease in the country before games.

Is really well shot and the stories range from touching to bizarre. Researched the mag a bit further and it's an Italian quarterly that has a different focus every issue so is a one off. Definitely worth picking up.

Hey guys, I'm not sure if it was here, but I remember going through a link that had some canvas/posters for sale by a particular designer that did like 80's/retro styled visuals, it would just have the team name and with their colors on the text in 3 lines, have an image of some sort within it like an adidas trainer or probably a subbuteo figure associated or something or rather.
