Arsenal legends put pen to paper
Opus are delighted to announce a stunning Icons Edition of the eagerly-anticipated Arsenal Opus will soon be on sale, featuring the signatures of some of the club’s most celebrated and successful former players.
Legends Tony Adams, Ian Wright, Charlie George, Bob Wilson, Thierry Henry and George Graham have already put pen to paper and they will soon be joined by fellow icons Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira, David Seaman, Frank McClintock and Liam Brady.
The original Arsenal Opus will be officially unveiled at a star-studded ceremony at The Emirates today and the Icons Edition, which will have an exclusive print run of just 500 copies, will follow later in the year.
“It has taken two years to produce the book and to get so many of the great names from Arsenal’s history to agree to sign the Icons Edition is the icing on the cake,” said Opus editor Nigel Seymour.
“These players are synonymous with the club and everything it has achieved over the years. The term ‘legend’ is often cheapened by overuse but in their case it couldn’t be more apt.”
The 850-page Arsenal Opus is a spectacular chronicle of the club’s history, focussing on the Highbury years from 1913 to 2006 and the recent move to Emirates Stadium. It features scores of exclusive interviews, features from leading writers such as The Daily Telegraph’s David Miller and The Sunday Telegraph’s Patrick Barclay, and more than 2000 painstakingly-researched images and original photo shoots.
The Icons Edition will retail at £4,250 while the original Opus is available at £3,000.
