In bounds and packing it up in print, Bout Book shows the ingenuity, expansion and global progression of revival roller derby through its bout artwork. As the undiminished popularity of this sport rightly rolls on, let its aesthetics give you a real taster of its history.
Divided into four chapters this first edition features the transitions of the sport from 2002 to present day.
Taking the lead from BGGW's first modern roller derby poster, get down and derby with over 150 leagues lacing up worldwide as leagues Battle for the Coast, put on Great Yorkshire Showdowns and do the Honky Tonk Stomp.
Featuring posters from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the USA watch how roller derby crosses five continents.
Created by roller derby skaters and fans for all those who he(ART) roller derby Bout Book exists to raise money for two registered charities - Regain Sport and Womankind. More information on these charities can be found on our charities page.
This book could not have happened without the support shown from the derby community. Pivotal to the success of this book are the leagues and designers who have kindly allowed us to include their bout artwork. What better way of demonstrating the diy ethic of roller derby as being for the skaters and by the skaters.
