Aberdeen used a distinctive and unusual slab serif typeface in club’s programme ‘The Don’ back in 1983.
After a lot of searching we finally tracked down ‘Delta’, in an old French type foundry’s sample book, and digitally reproduced it along with adding an extra style variation.
To ensure the limited edition print felt as special as the celebration, a silver foil was applied to a GF Smith Colorplan cover, with a star die-cut to frame Willie Miller (Captain) and John Hewitt (winning goalscorer).
Unearthing and collating the content was a true European effort. Thanks to everyone involved at home and away in Sweden and France.
A massive thank you on behalf of all the Gothenburg Greats for producing a truly outstanding Commemorative Programme for our 40-year anniversary on 11th May.
We’re all in agreement that it’s probably the best football programme we’ve ever seen.
