Personalised Football: A Ladybird Personalised Book - Gift Details

First published in 1964, this book was very much written for boys who enjoyed the beautiful game and wanted to know more about it. But now, the book looks at the popularity of football through history and how the Royal family were, for many years, worried that men would play football instead of doing archery and, thus, wouldn’t have enough skilled archers to help them fight in times of war. This classic Ladybird hardback book has a twist too – it’s personalised with your favourite football fanatic’s Name which appears on every page – in the text and in all the images.

Our Football: A Ladybird Personalised Book is loaded with information about football and is perfect for fans of all ages. With a hardback cover and beautifully reproduced images, it’s ideal for anyone with an interest in the beautiful game and features footballing facts inside the front cover with details of which teams won the First Division League Championships and FC Challenge Cup Final in each year, from 1950 to 1968. It’s wonderful for anyone swatting up for a pub quiz. The large, clear script by Ladybird, careful choice of words, frequent repetition and thoughtful matching text with pictures will bring to life the beautiful game. Better yet, you can personalise the book with any Name which you’ll see on every page – in both the text and cleverly embedded into the colourful images. There’s even room for a short Message on the inside page.

Your Gift Personalised

Personalise with Any Name of up to 12 characters and a Message on the inside page over two lines with up to 40 characters on each.
