It’s been a long time coming but we are delighted to finally release Issue Four and what we feel is our finest work to date.
In this issue, we’ve looked to capture the stories of those sides that fell just short of glory, but are remembered incredibly fondly nonetheless, and symbolise the fact that football is not just about winning.
With more features than ever before alongside a host of stunning photography, original illustrations and interviews, this issue features:
- Tottenham under Pochettino
- The Iconic Holland side of 1974
- Atlético Madrid under Simeone
- Roberto Baggio and the 1994 World Cup
- Borussia Dortmund in 2013
- England at Euro 2020
We’ve also got wonderful features from a variety of collaborators, covering St Ives FC and Oak City FC, while we also caught up Gary Thacker on his fantastic new book Out of the Blue, covering Chelsea’s Champions League win in 2012, Mark Johnson on his stunning designs, Pancho Monti on his photography project Bomboneras, capturing the emotions of female Boca Juniors supporters, Stilettos and Shinpads, a female-focused terrace wear brand set up by a mother and daughter, together with Faces of West Ham, a project following West Ham fans across a memorable few years.
It’s simply a pleasure to be able to release a fourth issue and we are so grateful for your ongoing support for the magazine. Printed on luxury uncoated paper and without a single advert, it’s simply 100 pages capturing the beauty of football and makes for a perfect gift for any football fan.
A huge thank you once again for your support for Escapismo.
