Drawing the 92 is a unique collection of football ground illustrations by artist Jamie B. Edwards. He has spent ten years and travelled more than 25,000 miles to draw all ninety two Premier League and Football League grounds in England and Wales in his inimitable bold colour style.
They have been collected together in a high quality hardback book (260 x 260mm; 224pp) which is to be published in the Autumn following a launch exhibition of the drawings at the National Football Museum in November.
Mark Chapman, presenter of Match of the Day 2, has written a foreword for the book after he bought several of Jamie’s prints at his market stall in Manchester. In it he states: " The artwork in this book is beautiful but what makes it a glorious offering, is that when you arrive at the drawing of your own special ground, it will take you back to your own special place with your own special memories. "
G2 is mounting a Kickstarter campaign in August to help raise funds for the print cost of the high-quality book which can be previewed via www.kickstarter.com/projects/1695363846/164001757?token=d63a4648
Supporters of this project have an exclusive opportunity to receive a signed copy of the coffee-table book prior to its release; as well as a open edition print (unframed or framed) of their favourite stadium delivered to their home. They can also buy one of just 92 copies of a cloth-bound slip-cased luxury collector’s edition of Drawing the 92 which will be signed and numbered by Jamie.
Beautifully designed the book will feature one club on each double page spread. Printed on high quality matt art paper with printed endpapers, imitation cloth cover and jacket. For the limited edition this will have a ribbon marker and will be bound in Brillianta tissue lined book bindiing cloth, foil blocked on gold on the spine, with a protective jacket. Then inserted into a protective slipcase.
These offers will not be available to the public following the book’s release in November.
