Time magazine just released the cover of its Jan. 25 issue, on newsstands this Friday, featuring an iconic image from the Trunk Achive of the late David Bowie. Shot by fashion photographer Herb Ritts in 1989, the image marks Bowie's second appearance on Time's cover (the first came on July 18, 1983, tied to the release of his "Let's Dance" album).

The Guardian also recently featured David Bowie as its frontman with an image from the National Portrait Gallery.
