'An Illustrated History Of Essendon Football Club' captures the essence of Essendon, one of the great VFL/AFL clubs, in words and images.
Using previously unpublished photographs from club and other archives and complemented by artefacts, memorabilia and strong editorial, the book outlines the club's rich history, from a suburban entity to a national powerhouse on and off the field.
The book takes a close look at more than 40 Essendon icons and cult figures including Dick Reynolds, Kevin Sheedy and James Hird, with a detailed breakdown of the club's 16 premierships, including a major feature on the record-breaking 2000 season, when the club lost only one match on the way to Grand Final success. Every player from that 2000 premiership team provides insight into the season.
'An Illustrated History Of Essendon Football Club' also features a series of essays written by some of Australia's most prominent and experienced journalists, historians and academics, including Jim Main, Lionel Frost, John Harms, Rohan Connolly, Emma Quayle, Karen Lyon, Roger Vaughan, Michael Lovett and Danny Power.
'An Illustrated History Of Essendon Football Club' is a must-have for dedicated Essendon fans and lovers of Australian sport.
