Cover justice, ten years later…

August 26, 2007

It was ten years ago when Princess Di and Mother Teresa both died within 48 hours from each other. There was enough time for all the major newsweeklies and weeklies to put either one of the subjects on their covers. With no exception, all the major magazines went with the mass, Princess Di rather than the class, Mother Teresa. The big picture was for the Princess and the side-bar picture was for Mother Teresa. Now, a decade later, the renovated and reinvented Time magazine reversed that picture. Mother Teresa, in a very powerful and moving account of her journey of faith, received the big cover picture treatment from Time magazine and Princess Di received the side-bar treatment. One more feather in the crown of the new Time magazine.


  1. A decade late, but I’m not complaining. Glad to see it.

  2. Although the European edition went with Di!
