Bringing the chic to soccer

A gorgeous new coffee table book captures some of the unique South African aspects of soccer.

In the midst of World Cup madness, the launch of Quivertree Publications’s Soccer Chic, "soccer the South African way", is right on the ball.
This visual exploration of the beautiful game with photographs by Craig Fraser, words by Mark Gleeson, and design and production by Libby Doyle, aims to capture the essence of soccer for the South African player and fan. Interesting soccer snippets and quirky comments from passionate soccer fans complement the impressive photography.
The book illustrates the prominence soccer enjoys in many South African communities and the positive effect the game has on so many people. From vuvulezas to customised mining helmets and commemorative scarves, the passion and joy of the game is an important element of South African culture.
