Magazine history in the making: Three issues in one week for TIMEMay 2, 2011
Time magazine is publishing three issues in one week. Talk about a weekly in a race with the news: One regular issue published last Friday, one special issue about the Royal Wedding and one special issue devoted to bin Laden. Glad to see print is still alive, well and kicking.
In a press release TIME said that “The cover image of the new issue features TIME’s iconic red “X” over bin Laden’s face, making this the fourth cover in TIME’s history to feature the red “X,” following Adolf Hilter (May 7, 1945), Saddam Hussein (April 21, 2003), and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (June 19, 2006). The cover was illustrated for TIME by Tim O’Brien, who also designed the al-Zarqawi cover.”
