The Beautiful Badge is the first book to explore the history of football club badges. From the original Red Devil to the £10 canary, it looks at what inspired them, who crafted them and how fans reacted. Extensive illustrations show how badges followed fashion, negotiated copyright and expressed the aspirations of owners, managers and fans.
