Everyone was thrilled to see Chelsea FC’s “captain, leader, legend” John George Terry lift the Premier League trophy for the 5th time in his career in May. The second edition of Season Annual documents the rollercoaster ride that was the 2016/17 Premier League season across 420 pages, charting the games and action that led to Chelsea being crowned champions. Packed with stats, match reports, statistics and analysis, Season Annual is a beautiful document of the most revered league in the beautiful game.
Season Annual includes contributions from three graphic designers, 39 illustrators and three sport journalists to create an “honest, impartial, design-led account of the highs and lows of this season’s Premier League. Organised into a week by week analysis the publication unpicks the happenings from the season from Antonio Conte’s pitch side dramatics to the race to the bottom by clubs from the North East (Middlesborough, Sunderland and Hull City).
Founded by Charlie Sims, Sam Smith and Josh Williams, who graduated together from Kingston University in 2014, the second issue of Season Annual, like the first, was funded using Kickstarter. Illustrator who contributed to the issue include Gus Scott, Joe Gamble, Martin Gordopelota and FC City Boys.
