In a fascinating story of 220 pages, through a selection of more than 300 images from 65 archives in America, Europe and Asia; the Mexican Football Federation and Cooperativa La Joplin celebrate, in an unprecedented and playful way, one of the great contributions of Mexico to all humanity: the ball.The first half of the book covers the remote origin of this claim, the symbolism and myth, the culture and art in Mesoamerica to answer all of the questions that may arise for those familiar and unfamiliar with the subject. The second part responds to the immediate question: what about the other balls? These are mainly in Asia and Europe. And the third narrates the evolution of the most popular ball of humanity: the football. And amidst all of this there is a convergence of childhood, math, humor, presidents and passion…Through an investigation of two years, this book celebrates one of the most influential objects in the culture of man, and of course, one of the greatest Mexican legacies. And beyond a history that provides much pride, it entails an ancient sense of joy and fun. Endearing brotherhood: culture and sport.
