When it comes to football, it doesn’t get any better than the Super Bowl. The 88-pound, 850-page anthology, Super Bowl XL Opus, from Kraken Opus, documents the first 40 years of the big game. The limited edition book sells for $4,000 in paydirt. Kraken calls it the world’s heaviest and most luxurious book. Every copy of the Opus, Limited or MVP edition, is hand-sewn and bound, covered in the finest quality leather, and presented in a wood-construction clamshell-style case covered in screen-printed silk. The MVP Edition shares the same content and production quality as the Limited Edition, but with one incredible difference. Each of the individually numbered copies from 1 to 400 has a single extra page—the MVP signature page.
The 1400 spectacular images, many previously unpublished, span the entire history of the Super Bowl. Unpublished photographs by Barton Silverman, the 1969 Jets team photographer, include images of the incredible homecoming of MVP Joe Namath. Plus, an 80” x 20” gatefold of MVP portraits by Walter Iooss, Jr., shot on a 20” x 24” Polaroid camera, captures the heart and soul of the players who posed for them at Super Bowl XL.
Yet another feature of the Super Bowl XL Opus is truly unique Super Bowl Game Chart. The most comprehensive and detailed game chart ever created, it not only details every play of every Super Bowl, but by cross-referencing player rosters and recording the role of each player on the field, the reader is able to track the ball and experience the flow of the game in a way that has never been achieved before.
