The cover of the January 1909 issue of People Magazine has long been a favorite among fans of the magazine.
The magazine’s editor, William Randolph Hearst, loved to play with the cover and created many different versions.
Some had birds, some had animals, some included a bear and a horse, while others had a cartoon cat and a rabbit.
The cover also had a flower on the left side of the cover, a sunburst on the right side and a red “D” on the center.
Hearst used a “D”‘ for the first letter of the word “disease” and a “r” for the second letter of that word.
The original version of the issue was called “A History of the United States,” but Hearst changed it to “A.D. 1900” and the issue later sold out.
