I think I'll leave it to others to write reviews about the deep philosophical significance of the Playboy centerfolds and contemporary American society. My capsule review is: here's a very heavy book with hundreds of photos of gorgeous females.

The rest of my review are random points:
* The total weight of this (reassuringly?) expensive package is thirty pounds, the combination lock case weighs five pounds.
* The production values are suitably sumptuous with photos printed in 200dpi screen on good paper and an obviously robust black binding holds it all together. The carrying case acts in lieu of a book jacket I guess.
* The centerfolds in the book are the same size as those in the perfect bound magazine. Prior to this the magazine was stapled and the centerfolds were a bit deeper by about three-quarters of an inch.
* There seems to confusion about how many Playmates are included in the unnumbered pages, 640 are named in the back of the book, from Rhonda Adams (June 1995) to Pamela Zinser (March 1974) but Janet Pilgrim made it three times. Marilyn Waltz and Marguerite Empey both appeared twice. Some centers featured two Playmates: The Collinson twins (October 1970) Carol and Darlene Beraola (January 2000) Deisy and Sarah Teles (December 2003) and the Dahm's (Erica, Nicole and Jacclyn) all appeared on the December 1998 centerfold. Playboy started in December 1953 and the last photo in the book is December 2006, you figure it out!
* There are five lucky photographers who seem to have spent their life telling Playmates to "Look straight at the camera, imagine it's your lover", Mario Casilli, Richard Fegley, Arny Freytag, Pompeo Posar and Stephen Wayda have between them taken over 350 centers. The book lists sixty-nine photographers.

I didn't know what to expect when I picked it up from the post office but the weight of the book spoke volumes about it's contents. The pages are very high quality as are the reproductions of the photos. The whole build of the book is very sturdy and aside from the fact that this is the biggest (size and weight) book that I own it's also the only book that comes with its own suitcase.

Truly a collector's item for lovers of the beautiful female body through the decades. Good job Playboy!!!

The only thing I wished that the pages were wider, but it's a really beautifull package of the most beautifull women that the world could show, it's nice to see them all here, turning page after page and looking at different beauties in every page...love it.
