Tiro is a book for all football lovers. Celebrating the sensational dual offering of the Euro 2016 and the Copa AmErica Centenario in the summer of 2016, Tiro has been assembled with a selection of timeless football writings on Latin American and European football.

Looking beyond the dominions of leagues and club football, the book meanders through the unchartered territories of Latin America and Europe, revealing stories from war and hooliganism to football legends, historical firsts, passionate derbies and its cultural impacts.

Tiro, which means 'shot' in Spanish, is a collection of such 33 original, engaging and unconventional writings. It illuminates some of the rare and exciting events in one place, written memories of some which don't exist, in English language, today.

Perfect bound in paperback, for a comfortable hold in hands, the printed book, we believe, is an 'art object'. It has been passionately designed and produced using a combination of both modern and traditional technologies and processes, and is a celebration of these two worlds working harmoniously together. Wherever possible, pages have been typeset by hand using traditional wooden type, individually hand-inked and printed letterpress.

Tiro, as a collector's item, should enchant and enthral; readers will savour the stories as much as the authors have relished writing them. We trust you will enjoy this journey across two continents in our tales crisscrossing the Amazon and the Alps.

Endorsements

"A fascinating and illuminating look at all manner of football stories from all over the world" - David Woods, Chief Football Writer, Daily Star

"This powerful collection of original writing demonstrates the absurdity of the phrase 'football and politics should never mix'. It illustrates, through an original and wide-ranging span of topics, how sport in general - and football in particular - is inextricably linked to human triumph and disaster. This is an informative and often moving book, and is an excellent collection of thoughtful writing" - Phil Ball, author of Morbo: the story of Spanish football (2001)

"Tiro is to be commended for shedding light on countries and clubs in eastern Europe and South America that are sometimes overlooked in today's fUtbological landscape. This refreshingly creative, passionate, and informed collection of essays should appeal to both ardent football fans and intellectually curious readers." - Peter Alegi, Professor of History at Michigan State University and author of 'Laduma Soccer, Politics & Society in South Africa' & 'African Soccerscapes: How a Continent Changed the World's Game' "
