Greg Lansdowne - Stuck on You: The Rise & Fall... & Rise of Panini Stickers
Stuck on You: The Rise & Fall... & Rise of Panini Stickers
A new book, due for publication on 2 March, 2015. A history of football stickers.
Stuck On You charts the history of football stickers in the UK - those little bundles of self-adhesive joy that have given so much to so many since Panini burst on to the scene in the late 1970's. Immerse yourself in a story of bitter rivalry, media moguls and the seedy underbelly of what can be a surprisingly murky business. Discover how upstarts Merlin took on the might of Panini and beat them at their own game - only for the Italian giants to hit back with the weight of nostalgia behind them. But ultimately you're invited to wallow in wistful memories of swapping in the school playground, shinnies and recurring doubles. Featuring interviews with many of the industry's leading historical players and images from some familiar and lesser-known collections, Stuck On You is a must-read for anyone who has ever spent months, if not years, hankering after the St Mirren badge.
Published by Pitch Published, the 256 page book has a r.r.p. of £12.99. It can be ordered from all the usual outlets - Amazon
