Admire their artwork, check out the final bout scores, see where the teams are from, and when the bout happened. This is a poster art book that visually shows the aesthetics of a sport which has crossed over five continents.
Created by roller derby skaters and derby fans based here in London, Bout Book exists to raise money for two charities - Regain Sport and Womankind whilst raising the profile of the artists who are creating a league's artwork. What better way of demonstrating the DIY ethic of roller derby as being for the skaters, and by the skaters. In fact it's often the case that the same people you see taking to the track, are the people designing the bout artwork. This is a great opportunity to become aware, follow, purchase or commission works.
