Celebrating 130 Years of Sports Afield
New book features a treasure trove of cover images and selected stories from years past.
2017 marks Sports Afield’s 130th anniversary, and to commemorate the occasion, Safari Press has released a special 360-page hardcover book: Celebrating 130 Years of Sports Afield: 1887-2017. The book is the first complete history of the magazine, divided into ten-year periods, with a discussion of each decade followed by a treasure trove of cover images and selected stories from each decade. For many years, each issue featured a painting on its cover specifically commissioned for the magazine, and this book features more than 400 of these eye-popping covers, all digitally restored to their original vibrant colors.
Celebrating 130 Years of Sports Afield is a fond look back at the past and a celebration of the future for a magazine that has always been, and remains, a strong and successful advocate for conservation, hunting, and the great outdoors. Flipping through its pages is a trip down memory lane for anyone who grew up reading outdoor magazines. It’s also a must-have for any enthusiast of historic hunting art and literature. This book is great for any hunting camp or trophy room and is sure to become a collector’s item. Order it from Safari Press: www.safaripress.com.
