A Topical Times for These Times

A Topical Times for These Times
Ken Grant
From youth games and local bar teams playing in district park leagues, to the weekly rituals of match days at Liverpool and Everton, this book brings together pictures of the game, the land and the people who populate it.

The Topical Times
The design of the book was based around the 1970's football albums The Topical Times. Victoria created a bold two colour design by mixing bold 1970's titles with an elegant typography.
