The beautiful Nelson Mandela covers are just rolling in the past week! A lot of them are of course “Special Tribute” issues like that of iMagazine (7 July 2013) and Kuier (3 July 2013). But sometimes Nelson Mandela is also features on the cover as a “just incase“, because if he does pass away in the next few days, then the specific issue will hopefully still be on-shelf, and then fly as fast as you can say VIVA!
And this Finweek cover, even though it’s really a beautiful cover and image, seems to be one of those “just incase” incase covers… the reason why I say that, is because the actual article is not about him directly, but rather about the influence Nelson Mandela (and his name) had on the places he grew up. So basically, this could have also been an infographic or design on their cover to feature the article, but I’m sure they decided to use this very beautiful and strong image on the cover for a very special reason… And I have my suspicions why 🙂
