Words and Pictures
In order to make The Official Celtic Opus the definitive publication on the club, we engaged the services of a selection of Scotland's finest sportswriters, ensuring unmatched originality and quality of content. Together they contributed over 200,000 words, conducting over 50 exclusive interviews with managers, coaches and players from the past and present, and producing short stories, profiles and features on iconic events.
With over 1,100 images, many rare or previously unpublished, plus specially commissioned shoots, artworks and illustrations, The Official Celtic Opus brings the colourful history of one of Europe's biggest clubs to vivid life.
Our researchers scoured picture agency archives and private collections worldwide in search of photographs capturing iconic moments, insider shots of Celtic stars through the ages and significant Hoops memorabilia dating back to the club's inception in the late 19th century. For every picture selected for inclusion, hundreds were discarded, ensuring unparalleled quality throughout. Furthermore, we employed the latest reproduction techniques allowing us to display these images on an epic scale and create an unprecedented visual experience.
