Simon & Schuster has confirmed it will be launching a paperback edition of Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography on Steve Jobs this fall, featuring a younger Jobs on its cover. The book, which will also be updated with a new afterword, will be available on September 10.
The book’s new cover features an image of Jobs taken by Norman Seeff in 1984, the year Apple launched the first Macintosh. The Apple co-founder obviously looks a lot younger than he does in the book’s original cover, which was taken 22 years later by Albert Watson, but he’s pulling the same pose.
Jobs approved the biography’s original cover, which he insists was the only decision he did have a hand in.
It’s unclear how many copies of the book have been sold since it went on sale in the fall of 2011 — Simon & Schuster is choosing to keep that information close to its chest — but it was Amazon’s best-selling book for some time after its release.
It was also the retail giant’s best-selling book of 2011, despite being available for just a few months.
