The New York­er, like the vast ma­jor­ity of glob­al me­dia out­lets, was ready for Nel­son Man­dela’s death Thursday night. And they pre­pared a power­ful cov­er trib­ute to the late South Afric­an pres­id­ent.

The cov­er, which will ap­pear next week, is titled “Mad­iba” and was drawn by Kadir Nel­son. Nel­son is also the au­thor of a chil­dren’s book about Man­dela.

You can read more about how the cov­er came to be, and see slides from Nel­son’s book, here.
