It's going to take more than one coffee table to carry July's Vanity Fair, since there will be 20 editions of the Condé Nast monthly for consumers to collect. The Bono guest-edited Africa issue will hit newsstands today. And if overfilling pockets at newsstands isn't enough to attract readers' attention, perhaps a giant display on Madison Avenue will be. Barneys New York will display all 20 of the covers in its windows through June 19.

Annie Leibovitz shot all the covers to capture what looks like a game of telephone among international icons discussing the crisis in Africa. The list of subjects read like a who's who of Africa awareness: Warren Buffett, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Desmond Tutu, Oprah Winfrey, Djimon Hounsou, Chris Rock, Muhammad Ali, Jay-Z, Bill and Melinda Gates, and Iman, to name a few. Each photo shows two subjects conversing with each other — Don Cheadle talking with Barack Obama, Madonna speaking with Maya Angelou, Queen Rania of Jordan speaking to Bono. "These are incredible people of our time who all have a passion for and a connection to Africa," said Leibovitz. "It was important to me to really show the humanity in their faces."

While most people would jump at the chance to be photographed by Leibovitz, celebrities, world leaders and policy makers are busy people. So the photographer flew to locations from Japan to Omaha to South Korea over the course of six weeks to produce the covers (none of which were shot in Africa, though a majority of stories inside the magazine were photographed there). Only the subjects of two covers — President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and Alicia Keys and Iman — were photographed together.

Meanwhile, Bono wrote his own editor's letter, saying he was "in awe" of Leibovitz, and called Carter "a true rock star (checklist: mad hair, natty dresser and de rigueur unrepentant smoking, etc. I looked like his manager.)."

It seems Vanity Fair did a 'Keira' with George C, this his third cover in like 13(?) months.

Iman

PS! This issue is super thin so I don't think you'd need more than one small coffee table to hold all 20

Yes...there are lots of various RED ads and references to the (red) campaign throughout the issue

I love the concept of the series. Everyone is like 'whispering' something to the other coverstar on the next cover, love it!

My favourites are: Bush and Tutu; Madonna and Angelou; Alicia and Jay-Z.

I'm disappointed by the one where Iman is the main focus. All the coverstars are wearing 'normal' clothing, and she all of a sudden a wearing something African inspired. Too bad the had to use a stereotype

btw, I accidentally switched covers # 4 & 5, so it looks out of order, it's too late to change it, maybe one the mods can alter it...
