New book on the Bantams: A HISTORY OF BCAFC IN OBJECTS by John Dewhirst (published by bantamspast)  #bcafcobjects


A unique 344, all colour publication which features more than 1,000 items of City memorabilia and historic club artifacts. It includes a 67,000 word definitive history of the club including the story of organised supporter groups at Valley Parade to the present day.


.HEREThe book has had some fantastic reviews, including from Simon Parker in the T&A: 'a unique way of following the club’s path to the present day. I can’t recommend it highly enough'  - click


Acclaimed author Hunter Davies has described it as ‘the best illustrated history of any club he has ever read’ and City supporters have acclaimed it as possibly the best book published ever about the Bantams.


David Conn in the Gardian wrote 'A History of Bradford City AFC in Objects, a new book by lifelong supporter John Dewhirst, appears not much more promising than a compulsive collection of memorabilia – but it is much more than the sum of its badges, pennants and other ephemera which the author admits his wife and three daughters would eagerly de-clutter tomorrow.


.HEREAny risk of appearing parochial is avoided by the care with which the objects are set out, the clean design and Dewhirst’s detailed explanations. It adds up to a labour of love, testament to a cherished institution and the 111 years in which it has played.' - click
