The 38 games of the 2015/16 Premier League season were unprecedented in their drama with Leicester City defying the 5000/1 odds to lift the trophy. Season Annual, founded by Charlie Sims, Sam Smith and Josh Williams, is a comprehensive document of the events that unfolded over the course of the competition. The 426-page book includes the work of three designers, 39 illustrators and two journalists to create an informative and entertaining almanac of the season.
The book is organised into sections for each match day with a full write up of the best game that week and an illustration of the man of the match. This is complimented with diagrams depicting the best goal of the week, artworks depicting key and controversial moments and typographic quotes from players and managers. The work is a labour of love for the founders, all football fanatics, and the list of contributors includes Michael Driver, Chester Holme and Reece Wykes.
