When it comes to Steve Jobs, TIME is Timely and Timeless…October 6, 2011
Halting the presses and reacting to the news of Steve Job’s death, TIME created a commemorative issue with a 21 page cover story package dedicated the late Apple and tech genius Steve Jobs. The magazine scrapped the original cover package and replaced it with the timely, yet timeless content devoted to Jobs. The issue reaches the stands and tablets tomorrow.
In a press release the magazine said
The issue includes a six-page essay by Jobs’ biographer Walter Isaacson, a historical report on Jobs career by TIME technology reporters Harry McCracken and Lev Grossman and a photo essay by Diana Walker, who has been shooting Jobs for TIME since 1982.
The cover image is a photograph of Jobs taken by Norman Seeff in 1984. This is the seventh time Jobs has appeared on the cover of TIME.
