In the tradition of great Magnum books, this publication brings together the work of the finest photographers of our time. Whether covering the latest news or working on commissions or their own personal stories, Magnum photographers have also found time to document a sport that unites us all - football. This uplifting book brings together an array of images by outstanding photographers working across the globe: Henri Cartier-Bresson in Italy, James Nachtwey in Brazil, Steve McCurry in Burma, Martin Parr in Japan, Abbas in Iran, Luc Delahaye in France, and many more. The pictures, taken over fifty years, show that whether played with a tin can on the back streets of Glasgow or with bare feet on a dusty field in Tanzania, football is a game that cuts across all geographic and social divides. Magnum photographers have captured the sport and its fans with affection and humour. Magnum Football is not a book about super-rich professionals; it uses football to illuminate the human condition.

Simon Kuper writes a regular sports column for the Observer and is the author of Football Against the Enemy, which won the William Hill Sports Book of the Year award in 1994.Review:
"pure joy. ... Play hide-and-seek with your thumb and it becomes a book of demotic ballet: the real Billy Elliot." The Independent "comic, candid and documentary" Amateur Photographer "Sometimes the best treasures are presented through the back door. For Magnum, the world's foremost independent photographic agency, soccer may have been an afterthought after covering decades of non sport world event but the residuals found in their text, published by Phaidon Press just prior to the 2002 World Cup, are a breathtaking collection of images that best describe what soccer represents on a planet so divers yet unified by a simple game." SOCCER Magazine "Fulfilling the coffee table brief, Magnum Football, to be published next week, is one of the more unusual and, visually, one of the more striking. It features images from various of the world's celebrated photographers, though they are not the pictures usually found in the sports pages." Business A.M
