“One of the greatest design eyes of our time”

December 17, 2011

Walter Isaacson shared a little background story to Fortune on how Steve Jobs insisted to be involved in designing the cover of Steve’s biography:

The author also talked about putting together the book’s cover. All of the signature Jobs touches are there — a sleek iPod-white body, minimalist design and even the Mac’s signature font. The Apple co-founder jokingly threatened to stop cooperating with his biographer if he wasn’t given some input over the cover. “It took me about one and a half seconds to say, ‘Sure!'” said Isaacson. “I mean this is one of the greatest design eyes of our time.”
