The Worst of Cricket 2 – Malice and Misfortune in the World’s Cruellest Game. The fifth in the ‘Worst of…’ series produced for PITCH Publishing. This volume is a 272 page A5 landscape hardback book. I handle the entire layout and design for this complete series including illustration throughout. A pleasure to work on, and genuinely well written, they sell really rather well.
An extract from the Amazon review reads: You do well to love Cricket , said Lord Harris, for it is more free from anything sordid, anything dishonourable, than any game in the world. Harris, who captained the first England team to do battle with the Australians in this country, obviously never got his hands on a copy of The Worst of Cricket. If that volume, published four years ago, failed to totally convince you that the sport is designed to disturb, dismay and disgruntle in equal measure, then maybe it was because it only scratched the surface. The Worst of Cricket 2 we are happy to say – completes the job.
