Hands down our favourite job of the year not only coz we’re partial to a bit of the old Association Football but because the Season Annual is a printed work of art.

In true Sky Sports hyperbole lets bombard you with some stats:
428 full colour pages
3 graphic designers
39 illustrators
2 sports journalists
1000 copies printed (only a handful are left so get yours quick!)
1 almighty effort from Leicester

We began discussing the concept of the Annual in early April and after a few rounds of quotes we settled on a spec.  The precise print run was hanging in the balance but with the Premier League title in the bag and euphoria in the air,  Leicester’s kit manufacturer Puma came onboard with further sponsorship enabling a longer print run and a central London launch event. Ex Why Zed provided additional sponsorship with a series of limited edition prints and invites printed to accompany the book and increase exposure.

The book provides a unique and comprehensive glossary of an iconic season in football history. The illustrations and infographics are jaw dropping, fresh and many form design classics in their own right.

An embossed cover accentuating the logo is very classy and the gold foiled dust jacket in ‘Leicester Blue’ adds a perfect finishing touch on what is a nigh on perfect publication.

Ex Why Zed makes self publishing a truly pleasurable experience!
Brilliant communication from start to finish. Mike had endless patience for the many questions we asked. The guides provided were easy to follow and super helpful (the video guides are a must watch too). Our order of hardback illustrated children's books was delivered expertly packaged and on time. As for the finished product itself - stunning - a real joy to finally hold, beautifully made and perfectly printed! We couldn't have asked for more. Well, we did - we instantly placed an order for paperback children's colouring books too, which we are equally as happy with. Look forward to working with Ex Why Zed again in the future.
