Competition: win an index documenting crests from English football clubs over the years

Dezeen is giving away five copies of a book featuring the evolving crests of 47 Premier League football clubs and exclusive artwork for each team.

The Football Crest Index by James Kirkup includes a selection of crests designed over the years, accompanied by a description of the clubs' histories.

Backed through a Kickstarter campaign in just under one week, the index will be available to purchase in time for the Premier League 2017/18.

"To represent each club, we've handpicked 47 designers who support each club to produce original and exclusive artwork to sit alongside their club's history, giving each spread a unique execution," said Kirkup.

The index includes crests from Leicester City, Nottingham Forest, Blackburn and Chelsea, to name a few.

Kirkup hopes to release further Indexes in the future, documenting crests from global clubs. He also has plans to host a gallery event to exhibit the history of the Premier League clubs' crests.

Football kits and crests allow fans to identify with clubs globally and dramatic changes to these logos can cause controversy.

Earlier this year, Italian football club Juventus were met with a negative reaction when they unveiled their new minimalist redesign of the club's crest.
