Book Description

Aug. 7 2012
“I only read it for the articles.” Few modern punch lines (and lies!) are as iconic as this one. But humor and good writing aside, the true allure of Playboy are the magazine’s spectacular cover images. The stunning women who graced these covers enticed millions from the fifties through the new millennium.
Now Hugh Hefner has chosen 200 of Playboy’s breathtaking, innovative covers for this lush retrospective, digitally reproduced and in color. Acclaimed author and long-time Playboy writer Damon Brown explores how the magazine’s newsstand decisions made an indelible impact on American culture, while ultimate Playmate Pamela Anderson provides an illuminating foreword.

5.0 out of 5 stars Titalating Sept. 5 2012
By ellison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Massive collection of pictures for a person to feast their eyes upon. Some are artwork. Had me wanting to look at the rest of the magazine the photos came from. Some of the covers include additional photos, Vanna White plummer crack. After all it is available for sale in a family bookstore. A coffee table book for sure. Difficult to not want to pick up and look through. Thick as a major metropolitan phonebook.

5.0 out of 5 stars great covers , great memories May 16 2013
By jeff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of playboy magazine since the 70s and I've collected the publication since the early 80s and I've always enjoyed the covers and trying to find the rabbit image on everyone except the blatantly obvious ones , never saw the artistic one of the earlier years and they just floored me , Mr. Hefner had an incredible taste in photography & color , I enjoyed the book immensely .

This book and the hardcover playboy cartoons book are now permanent fixtures at the man cave. Highly recommended. Now if I could only buy all the covers as pieces of wall art ;)

Great history of the covers with surprising explanations. Interesting to see the amount of thought that goes into the design.
