Paul Bacon, prominent book cover designer, dies age 91

We received some sad news today that the amazing book cover designer and our friend, Paul Bacon, passed away on Monday, June 7, at the age of 91. We wouldn't be where we are today if it wasn't for Paul and his groundbreaking designs. Our co-founder Todd has fond memories of each visit Paul made to our office. "Paul's visits to simply say "hi" are among the best times we've had since starting Out of Print. He's truly the most interesting and kind person I have met. If there is ever someone I would like to become, he's the guy. There will always be a very special place at our company for Paul (or "Bacon" as he often referred to himself)." In memoriam, we wanted to repost our interview with Paul from September, 2012.
