Playboy says goodbye to Hugh Hefner by making him the first man to ever grace the magazine’s cover solo

Hugh Hefner is being honored on the front cover of the publication he founded.

The cover of Playboy‘s November/December 2017 issue shows a side profile of Hefner, who was photographed by Larry Gordon back in 1965. The late publisher, who was born in 1926, was 39-years-old in the portrait.

The cover makes the late publisher the 11th man to ever be on the cover of the magazine and the first man ever to be on the cover without a female model present.

Hefner died two days before the issue was going to press, according to a statement from Playboy.

In addition to the front page, the first six pages of the issue are a celebration of the star’s life. Hefner’s son, Cooper, also writes a piece about his famous father.

The star of E! reality show The Girls Next Door died at his Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 91 surrounded by loved ones.
