In the final months of his life, Everton Legend Dave Hickson sat down to record his life story, from being scouted by the legendary Dixie Dean to playing in front of 70,000 plus crowds at Goodison. The only man to turn out for all three Merseyside teams he captivated the city with his outrageous bravery, running through opposing defences with the verve of a Boy’s Own hero, with his trademark blond quiff he looked the part too.
I was honored to be asked to design a limited edition cover for his autobiography, my only regret being that Dave passed away before he could see it.
This is a Limited Edition run of 250. Royalties benefit Hickson’s nominated charities, the Everton Former Players’ Foundation and Lily Centre. Each book contains an original signature from Hickson, taken from a signing carried out by a memorabilia dealer shortly before his death.
The RRP is £40 and it is available from deCoubertin Books whilst stocks last.
