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 is 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, the book features footballing facts 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. For the perfect final touch, include a Message on the opening page and let the recipient reminisce the one and only beautiful game. Of course, there are many more classic Ladybird Books just waiting to be personalised - take a look!

Your Gift Personalised

Personalise the book with Any Name of up to 12 characters which will appear on the cover and featured throughout the images.
