About this title

Synopsis:

The original Mr. Playboy's illustrated autobiography
Girls, gags, and great writing: the life and times of Hugh Hefner
Hugh M. Hefner presents an illustrated autobiography with chronological highlights from Playboy's first 25 years.
His personal life and career from cartoon-drawing childhood to astonishing success with Playboy are revealed in the most intimate portrait ever.
Limited Edition of 1,500 numbered copies signed by Hefner, in a Plexiglas case. Includes a facsimile edition of Playboy #1 from 1953 featuring the iconic Monroe cover and first nude shots and a 7 x 7 cm piece of Hef's famous silk pajamas, worn by the great man himself.
This sumptuous six-volume anthology
celebrates the decadence, sophistication and wit of the original men's magazine and its creator. Hugh Hefner's Playboy highlights the extraordinary years from 1953 to 1979, with a selection of each era's spiciest centerfolds and writing by literary icons Gore Vidal, Norman Mailer, Jack Kerouac and Ray Bradbury, as well as some of the most important Playboy Interviews, including Martin Luther King, John Lennon, Richard Nixon, and Roman Polanski. A wealth of never-before-seen ephemera from Hefner's personal archives includes original artwork, cartoons and correspondence, and 700 pages of autobiographical text about his youth, military service, early career as a cartoonist, numerous girlfriends and eventual success with Playboy. A vast selection of personal photos many previously unseen include behind-the-scenes shots from the Playboy Mansion, Playboy Clubs, and the Big Bunny jet. This is the definitive history of Playboy and its legendary founder.
