A coffee table book, conversation piece, nostalgic remembrance, and illustrated history of vintage helmets all in one, Wings: An Illustrated Celebration of Michigan Wolverine Helmets was created by the brother team of James Dack and Christopher Dack. James is an avid helmet collector; Christopher is a Michigan alumnus, writer, and photographer.
This book is the first to celebrate the history of the University of Michigan's famed winged helmet, a design recognizable even to casual football fans across the country, a design that has become a symbol of the winningest football program in America.
Fans, alumni, and helmet collectors will enjoy more than 40 pages of facts, anecdotes, and original photos, including a complete gallery of game-used Wolverine helmets from the 1940s through 2018.
True blue fans and helmet collectors alike will appreciate the illustrated sidebars shedding light on little-known facts about the history of the helmet design that Bo Schembechler himself called the "most distinct" in the country.*
Autograph seekers will appreciate the white inside cover and back cover, a perfect spot for the signature of their favorite player or coach.
