After four years in office and two months of denying his defeat to Joe Biden, U.S. President Donald Trump bids farewell this week to the White House. Whether this also means a final exit from the world stage remains to be seen — and one way to judge will be whether this is the last we've seen of Trump on covers of major magazines.

Trump has always been obsessed with media in general, and magazine covers in particular. In 2017, TIME had to explicitly refute the president's claim that he had passed on their choice to name him "Person of the Year" for a second year in a row and asked Trump to remove fake covers with his face on display in his golf clubs.

The endless worldwide series of Trump magazine covers is a technicolor reflection of his tumultuous presidency. From his footstomping "America First" stance to his intriguing relationship with Vladimir Putin to the pure "chaos" of his presidency, Trump was both a real threat to democracy and an endless opportunity for any creative magazine team:
