A picture book to release on David Beckham's illustrious career
French media company Lagardere has signed a deal with former England captain David Beckham to release a picture book on the football star’s glorious playing days.
The book , which will be published by Headline Publishing Group, the UK unit of the company, will be released on October 31 this year.
Jonthan Taylor, non-fiction publishing director of Headline, bought the rights in a deal with XIX Entertainment, a company which manages several sports celebrities including Beckham, Lewis Hamilton and Andy Murray.
“David Beckham is, without a doubt, the most universally recognised and popular sports person on the planet, and this gorgeous book will be a superb way for his millions of fans around the world to celebrate David’s remarkable achievements within football,” Taylor said.
David Beckham retired from football earlier this year, bringing his illustrious career to an end.
