'A delightful book ... [and] a valuable resource' -
International Football Kits (True Colours) charts the evolving football strip design of the world's leading national football teams, from 1966 to the present day.
Guaranteed to bring back memories of your favourite team's kits and help you discover new ones, this groundbreaking book features strips that made it to the greatest stage in football – the FIFA World Cup – as well as rare designs that were never worn.
John Devlin, the authority on football kits, analyses and evaluates the home, away and third kit designs of the top football-playing nations, detailing when the strip was worn, who wore it and the important matches in which it featured.
This carefully curated collection features more than 1,300 never-before-published artworks, and describes the changing styles, varied manufacturers and remarkable controversies of international football fashion over the last 50 years.
