Tiro is a book for all football lovers. Celebrating the sensational dual offering of the Euro 2016 and the Copa América Centenario in 2016, Tiro has been assembled with a selection of timeless football writings on Latin American and European football. Looking beyond the dominions of leagues and club football, the book meanders through the unchartered territories of Latin America and Europe, revealing stories from war and hooliganism to football legends, historical firsts, passionate derbies and its cultural impacts. Tiro, which means ‘shot’ in Spanish, is a collection of such 33 original, engaging and unconventional writings. It illuminates some of the rare and exciting events in one place, written memories of some which don't exist in English language, today. Perfect bound in paperback, for a comfortable hold in hands, the printed book, we believe, is an 'art object'. It has been passionately designed and produced using a combination of both modern and traditional technologies and processes, and is a celebration of these two worlds working harmoniously together. Wherever possible, pages have been typeset by hand using traditional wooden type, individually hand-inked and printed letterpress.
Quietly, and without anyone really noticing, the last commercial letterpress printer shut its doors in Bristol in 2012 after maybe 600 years of continuous work in the city. This is our small contribution to the revival of this wonderful traditional craft for the new digital generation and understand the thrill of seeing ink on paper. We love the texture of our title and the book.
