AllThingsD reports the paperback edition of Steve Jobs: A Biography will be released on September 10th. The paperback version will feature a photo of a younger Steve on the cover, and will also include a new afterward.
The photo used on the hardback, taken by Albert Watson in 2006, was based on the pose of the much earlier photo used on the paperback, taken by Norman Seeff in 1984 – the year the Macintosh was launched. Steeff also took the famous photo of Jobs posing with that Mac, whichTime used as its cover photo for its commemorative issue shortly after his death …
The hardback edition of Jobs’ bio sold over 379,000 copies in its first week, going on to become the Amazon.com best-seller of 2011 in just 45 days. The book is also available as an e-book, but this will be the first time it has been made available in paperback form.
While the paperback edition’s price hasn’t been officially announced, Amazon.com has a somewhat incomplete pre-order page showing it for $17.99. The hardback, which was originally priced at $35, is available at the moment on Amazon for the discount price of $17.74.
