Less than 48 hours after Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died, Time magazine is rushing to the presses with a special commemorative issue paying tribute to the visionary.
The special issue, hitting newsstands and tablets tomorrow, features Jobs on its cover and 21 pages dedicated to the man behind the iPhone, iPad, and iPod.
Time‘s special edition includes a six-page essay by Jobs’ biographer Walter Isaacson, a historical report on Jobs iconic 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.
“This is Steve’s seventh Time cover, which puts him in the category of Presidents and other world leaders,” Time editor Rick Stengel says. “No one has tracked Steve’s life better than the man who used to have my job, Walter Isaacson. Walter writes that Steve was the modern creation myth writ large and that he revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing and digital publishing.”
The magazine is increasing its print run for this special issue, which will be available worldwide.
