OPUS today announce the publication of the PELÉ – THE OPUS during the 22nd FIFA World Cup being held in Qatar. The Opus is crafted into ten chapters that takes the audience on a journey from Pelé’s early years through to all four World Cup finals in which he played. In 1958, Pelé a 17 year old boy-genius, was unveiled to the world in Sweden at the sixth FIFA World Cup. He was the youngest player to ever be named in a World Cup squad and he went on to re-write the record books and over his career. He would go on to become a house-hold name and one of the most recognisable humans on the planet.
The Limited Marquee Edition numbers 1,279 copies – a copy for each goal Pelé scored in his career. It measures 62cm x 45cm. The 264 pages have been printed in ultra-high definition on luxury heavyweight 200gsm silk paper and then hand-bound. It is housed in a hand-made presentation case and weighs 16kg. Each copy features a specially designed signature page that has been personally hand-signed by Pelé.
