To celebrate the magazine’s 90th anniversary, TIME has released a video that traces some of its most important and memorable cover designs from the past 90 years. The magazine first hit newsstands back in 1923, but the cover didn’t feature its iconic red border until a few years later.

The rapid-fire highlight reel manages to pack 90 years of storied TIME history into two minutes, showing the importance of the printed word by delving into the magazine’s extensive archive.

Readers can also share their favorite TIME covers and memories on Twitter via the hashtag #90YearsofTIME.
