After almost two years since the release of the hardcover book, Simon & Schuster is due to publish the paperback of Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs this fall. But don’t mistake the cover photo for a clean-shaven Ashton. The paperback cover art will feature 29-year-old Jobs in the same fashion as the hardcover’s iconic black-and-white portrait.
Taken by photographer Norman Seeff in 1984, the new cover shows younger Jobs with the same memorable gaze and hand-on-chin pose. The hardcover photo, taken by Albert Watson in 2006, was an image that Jobs approved himself for the cover of the biography. Along with the updated cover, the paperback will feature a new afterword.
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson is scheduled in paperback for September 10, 2013.
