Final Newsweek print edition cover unveiled

In a nod to its digital-only future, it even has a Twitter hashtag on the cover.

NEWSWEEK HAS UNVEILED the cover of its final print edition, dated December 31 2012.

Featuring a black-and-white image of the iconic Newsweek skyscraper in New York, it is emblazoned with a Twitter hashtag – #LastPrintIssue – in a nod to its all-digital future.

From January 2013, Newsweek will only be available in digital form, an announcement that was made two months ago.

The current affairs magazine announced in October that it is to end its print edition, a move which comes less than two years after it merged with the Daily Beast website.

Its new digital publication will be called Newsweek Global. It will be released on a weekly basis for tablet and Kindle readers. Editor Tina Brown said in October: “We are transitioning Newsweek, not saying goodbye to it”.

The Daily Beast is carrying an oral history of Newsweek to mark the final print issue, with various writers talking about the important moments and people in the history of the publication.
