Hundreds of Illustrations from the Dawn of the Great American Game

You’ve never seen football like this before! The largest collection of 19th century football art ever published in one volume.

This visual time capsule reveals how football began and evolved, and how most Americans were introduced to the game before the advent of action photography.

Illustrators include Frederic Remington, Charles Dana Gibson, A.B. Frost, Edward Penfield, I.R. Wiles, W.T. Smedley, Charles J. Taylor, and many other talented artists. Without these works of art, we would have no visual record of the early American game.

The 8.5 x 11 inch art book includes a chronological Table of Contents and a full Index with dozens of source publications. The images were scanned from original sources and restored by The Lost Century of Sports Collection.

Samples from the book are shown in Football Art Gallery 1 and Football Art Gallery 2.
