1966 Missouri football program by Amadee

Amadee Missouri football program

Fantastic portrait of Missouri football coach Don Faurot by legendary St. Louis sports cartoonist Amadee Wohlschlaeger. The image is composed from names of the all-conference stars and team captains who played under him. It today’s font-driven design world word-fill illustrations have become commonplace. Few have the style and finesse of this piece – the composition of a masterful artist. Amadee passed away last June at the age of 102 after a career spanning over 70 years.
