Quote’s Archive is a celebration of 50 selected pairs of vintage adidas shoes from a period spanning the late ’70s to the early ’90s. Each trainer forms part of legendary adidas collector Quote’s own archive and has been beautifully illustrated by Peter O’Toole.
Each page highlights a different model, and is packed with information about the history and make-up of the shoes as well as personal anecdotes, all written by Quote himself. Highly readable and beautiful to look at, Quote’s voice and personality breathe life into the text, whilst O’Toole’s illustrations brilliantly represent the individual character of the shoes. Drawings of original shoe labels and boxes add contextual detail and paint a highly personalised picture of a very exciting period in sports footwear history.
A collector’s object in itself, the book has been designed and laid out by Adam Gill and features a matt finish, laser etched title cover and fabric binding. A must for collectors, fans of illustration and followers of the 3-Stripes brand, Quote’s Archive will doubtless serve as reference and inspiration to future collectors, designers and illustrators the world over.
