If you've got an old woollen footy jumper with a great back story then chances are it's perfect to feature in a new book to be called "For the Love of the Jumpers - Vintage football jumpers of Australia.
The book will be a celebration of the Australian Rules football jumpers of the past, with a focus on the pre -sublimated era, when jumpers were made of wool, then wool/acrylic blend and later acrylic, (also lace up jumpers). The purpose is to tell the visual story — and preserve the history — of traditional jumpers, their manufacture and designs.
The book will feature photos of jumpers of both big & small league jumpers, with an emphasis on those with stories behind them.
I'm part way through the project and am keen to document as many of the fabulous jumpers from yesteryear as possible before they succumb to the ravages of time & moths.
If you are interested in having your jumper included please contact me on 0417 713 758 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note I am based in Melbourne but am willing to travel to photograph said jumper/s.
