Newsweek announced that it will cease production of its print publication at the end of this year.The magazine will be moving to an all-digital format with a publication called Newsweek Global, marking the end of an era that started back in 1933.

The weekly has had a lively history, and is known for award-winning coverage of the most momentous events of the 20th and early 21st centuries.

But the magazine will probably be most remembered for its provocative covers.
