Description


'Messigraphica displays the data beautifully, allowing us to see the information quickly and clearly, and be in awe of the footballing phenomenon in comparison with a whole host of other players and sport stars.

Not only is this well-researched biography – which covers Messi’s early years in Argentina and Barcelona’s Academy – informative with its words, it literally illustrates his brilliance. Pep Guardiola once said to journalists: “Don’t write about him, don’t try to describe him. Watch him.”  We’re sure he’d be happy to view this quite excellent alternative.' Fantasista10


Lionel Messi is universally recognised as one of the greatest footballers of all time. From his childhood days kicking a ball on the streets of Rosario, Argentina, through his rise at the Barcelona academy, Messi has dribbled, dazzled and fired his way into the footballing elite.

In this innovative biography, Messi’s genius is explored and celebrated like never before: striking infographics illustrate the brilliance of his performances in football's greatest occasions, illuminate his pitch coverage and ball skills, as well as, his outstanding goal-scoring feats – no man has scored more goals in a calendar year. Messi’s talent, athleticism and eye for the game are showcased against his teammates, rivals and footballing legends.

Analysing his years under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola, the overarching shadow of fellow Argentine great Maradona and his rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo, Sanjeev Shetty charts Messi’s rise into a player revered in equal parts for the goals he scores and the ones he creates.

Through infographics, photography and analysis, Messigraphica reveals the genius of Barcelona’s greatest like never before.

Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
