I’d wanted to work on a football book for a long time, and this World Cup 2018 guide finally gave me the opportunity to do that. Having watched COPA90’s brilliant football content online, I approached them about creating this book and together we spent the best part of a year developing the ideas and artwork that went into the final product. We set out to do something a little different from the other World Cup books on the market, and offer a real fan’s perspective on football’s greatest tournament. The book we ended up with is one of the most fascinating and visually striking titles I’ve ever worked on (or seen!).
