Time, Fortune announce tribute issues to Steve Jobs

updated 01:30 am EDT, Fri October 14, 2011

Commemorative issues go on sale Nov. 15th

Time Magazine and Fortune Magazine are both producing different "Special Commemorative" issues dedicated to Apple Co-Founder and Chairman Steve Jobs, who passed away last week at the age of 56. The issues are not part of the regular print run and such commemorative issues are routinely produced as souvenirs of historic events or other momentous stories. Both will include reprints of each magazines' own previous articles on Jobs, along with new material and rarely-seen photos.

Both magazines have already paid tribute to Jobs; Time stopped its previously-planned press run last week and instead devoted its cover and 21 pages inside the issue to Jobs' life, including a photo essay by Diana Walker and an original piece by Jobs' biographer Walter Isaacson. Fortune Magazine presciently issued an e-book exclusively for Kindle just over a week prior to Jobs' death, culling together 17 profiles and interviews with Jobs and friends such as Oracle boss Larry Ellison and former Intel CEO Andy Grove from across his 30-year public career.

The Times special issue will be called "Steve Jobs: The Genius Who Changed Our World" while the Fortune issue will be called "The Legacy of Steve Jobs - 1955-2011." Both will likely re-use much of the same material as appeared in their earlier tributes in a more "coffee table" friendly hardcover format along with additional interviews and photos.

The two publications will chronicle Jobs' legacy, his life story, and his impact both within the tech industry and outside Silicon Valley. The magazines will sell for $20 each and be available beginning November 15th. Amazon and Barnes & Noble are among the online booksellers taking pre-orders for the special tributes.
