Paperback Edition of Steve Jobs Biography to Feature Photo of a Younger Jobs
Simon & Schuster is set to publish a paperback edition of Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography on September 10th, reports AllThingsD. The new edition will feature a cover image of Jobs as a younger man and a new afterword.
But new art, taken by Norman Seeff in 1984, should attract a lot of attention. The original striking and simple black-and-white photo of Jobs on the hardcover jacket of “Steve Jobs” — which was taken by Albert Watson in 2006 — showed the legendary tech figure later in his life and was an image Jobs approved. The new one has Jobs in the exact same thumb-on-chin pose, with the exact same intense gaze that he was well known for.
The Steve Jobs biography was Amazon's best selling book in 2011; however, Simon & Schuster has not released sales figures for the book. The paperback's release comes nearly two years after the hardcover edition was released.
