This giant volume tells the inside story of Celtic FC from its foundation in 1888, via Jock Stein’s heroes of 1967, to the modern-day successes of Martin O’Neill and Gordon Strachan.
More than four years in the making, this monumental publication takes the viewer on a journey way beyond the scope of previous history books on the club. An array of brilliant writers, photographers, illustrators, artists (and even dancers) combine to highlight the key strands of the club’s DNA which make Celtic a unique football institution.
The heavyweight content of the Opus incorporates over 200,000 words plus 1,100 photographs displayed on an unprecedented scale, including many previously unpublished images, exclusive photo shoots, beautiful artwork and rare memorabilia.
A visual feast and a true collectors’ item, the The Official Celtic Opus European Champions Edition demands to be seen and experienced by every Hoops fan.
The Official Celtic Opus is huge – the weight of it is amazing and the pictures are incredible! I enjoyed participating in the polaroid photo shoot at Celtic Park alongside some of the greatest icons in the club's historyShunsuke Nakamura
