  • Here’s a spread for Priest & Grace’s most recent Eight by Eight Magazine.  Been meaning to get to this one up for ages.  The subject is Bert Trautmann, a goalkeeper for Manchester who in 1956 managed to break his neck during a game and then finish the final 15 minutes, actively and decisively ensuring a win.  Trautmann died on the 19th of July, midway through this assignment.  It was an honor (not to mention a nerve-wracking job) to help to memorialize this soccer hero.  My thanks to Robert for the freedom and real-estate he gave me to make this piece.
