Now in paperback, more than 150 of the best photos from Vernon Biever's historic archive have been gathered into one keepsake volume. The Glory of Titletown is a celebration of both sports photography and the game of football, a sincere appreciation of a gifted photographer, and an inspiring tribute to a spectacular team. From the early days of Curly Lambeau to the fabled Lombardi era and Super Bowl XXXI champions, Biever provides a unique photo album of Packers football.
