What started with a world first – the archaeological excavation of a goalpost hole – ended with a trowel as an exhibit in the National Football Museum. It is to all intents and purposes, ground breaking. In 2013, the Park Avenue football ground, a long-forgotten time capsule of Bradford’s social history, began to be unearthed by archaeologist Jason Wood and artist Neville Gabie.

That first tentative dig convinced them to grab the moment before the ground’s legacy was lost forever. Invigorated by the fans’ enthusiasm, with funding from Arts Council England and the National Football Museum, and with the blessing of Bradford Metropolitan Council, they returned in 2015 with an enlarged team of archaeologists and artists, once again to be embraced by the passionate Avenue fans with their contributions and insights. It is a publication which uses art and archaeology to celebrate the mythology of this once great club.

The book also contains a DVD of artist works and interviews with the archaeologist and fans.

Reviews:

“It reminds me of Damien Hirst’s archaeological book of his Diamond Skull, but it’s more Jeremy Deller than Hirst”
As reviewed by @pittsmike in @archaeologyuk

“What a superb production and a very interesting looking book! I believe this is a first entry to our collection along the lines of goal line archaeology!
And of course, it looks to be a fascinating and moving insight into the social history aspect also.”
Amy Wolstenholme
Senior Library Assistant Rewley House Continuing Education Library, one of the Bodleian Libraries

“Thanks for the swift service @BPA_BreakGround a marvellous addition to my local sports library.”
Mick Handley

“There it is! The green and white, and then the BPA tricolor on the bottom spine. I often look for minute details but I have to admit I reckon I wouldn’t have spotted this!
… Whole thing is a work of art.
You know, we all buy books at times, then some are passed on to other people or given to charity etc, and just a few really key books are kept.
One of those forever books is this one. It’s a book you just don’t let go of. Great!”

Pillars of Light: Jeremy Gardiner

Monday, September 12th, 2016

This is the accompanying publication to Paisnel Gallery’s new exhibition from Bath-based artist Jeremy Gardiner around the theme of the lighthouse. The artist explores the dramatic south west coastline of Cornwall, Devon and Dorset, travelling from the islands of Lundy to Godrevy and on to the Isle of Wight.

This is reflected in the use of spot varnish details throughout the publication, which glint and catch the eye on the paper surface. The publication is wrapped in an unusual hard dust jacket that houses the DVD.

Because of Judo: Richard Goulding

Saturday, May 21st, 2016

Days before he died Akinori Hosaka said to Richard Goulding, “I am not a wealthy man but, because of judo in my heart, I am a millionaire”. This statement led to a five year project and the resulting photographs are now published as a monograph by The Ichiban Press.
