The New Yorker honours Nelson Mandela with striking cover image

Dec 6th 2013, 8:01 AM 1,715 0

NEXT WEEK’S NEW Yorker magazine will carry this image of Nelson Mandela on its front cover.

South Africa’s anti-apartheid leader and first democratic president died yesterday at the age of 95 after a period of ill health.

Artist Kadir Nelson designed the New Yorker cover, saying:

I’ve recently made a children’s book about Nelson Mandela, but for [the] cover, I settled on a younger image of him during the time that he was on trial with over a hundred of his comrades.
