Since 1967, millions of sports fans have scrambled for tickets or huddled around televisions to experience the ultimate celebration of America's game – the Super Bowl. Now, Opus bring you the ultimate tribute to one of the world's greatest sporting events: XL Super Bowl The Opus.
At half a metre square, 850 pages long and weighing in at 37kg, XL Super Bowl The Opus is the biggest book on football ever published. Chronicling the first 40 Super Bowls, the 1,400 images within this Opus are truly breathtaking, the 150,000 words delivered by some of America's finest writers bring back spine-tingling memories, and the quality and sheer scale of the Opus is totally unique.
Chapters are dedicated to each Super Bowl, I to XL. These include a story of the season, a location shot of the stadium, the story of the game with stunning photography, a spread dedicated to the game's MVP and a play-by-play game chart showing graphically every play of the game.
