When LeRoy Neiman and Hugh Hefner met in the early 1950s, while Neiman was doing women's high fashion drawings and Hefner was a copywriter in a Chicago department store, neither could have predicted that a twelve-inch woman called Femlin was waiting in the wings. But Femlin is mischievous. She's spunky. And she knows how to strike while the iron is hot. Fifty years later, Femlin is still going strong and sassy. Neiman has drawn her for every issue of Playboy for the last half-century, showing her at play, at sport, and at her ease. Wearing her trademark heels, stockings, and gloves - and not much else - Femlin has become a beloved icon of Playboy... and a celebrity in her own right. M Press is honored to present 50 years of LeRoy Neiman's Femlin drawings, some of which have never before seen in print. With text and images by Neiman, and an afterword by Playboy founder and publisher Hugh M. Hefner, the Femlin is shown in all her flattering historical light. As she says "It's about time I got my own book!"
