The best designed football/soccer magazine around returns with its 10th issue, featuring that man Zinedine Zidane (‘There Will be Blood’ – yet another stunning illustrative cover). Eight by Eight is an independent large-format magazine that is the work of Robert Priest and Grace Lee, based out of New York City.
Issue 10 profiles Real Madrid manager Zidane’s career from his grace and elegance on the pitch to his burning need to dominate, a trait that can be seen in his ruthlessly effective Real Madrid side this season as they continue their quest to dominate Europe.
There are also articles on the Bundesliga and Chilean midfield enforcer Arturo Vidal, with Eight by Eight contributor Uli Hesse catching up with Vidal in Munich recently for an exciting interview.
There’s a piece on recently fired manager Jürgen Klinsmann and his bold vision to remake U.S. Soccer, Arsenal’s most notorious hooligan, and a profile of former U.S. women’s national goalkeeper Hope Solo. There’s so much more inside, and we urge you to pick a copy.
Eight by Eight remain staunch supporters of print. There’s nothing greater than holding up the magazine, feeling the weight of its pages, being struck by the vastness of the design and art, and tucking into a few stories before the matches begin. As an independent magazine they depend on your support to continue producing the best stories and design in the football world.
