"With the very first issue of Playboy, Hugh Hefner issued a challenge to photographers: Forget everything you know. The future begins now. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we will show the world how to see. For fifty years the magazine has stood by that initial challenge. With the Playmate, Hefner created a cultural icon. But the same vision translated into groundbreaking photojournalism, sophisticated cover design, freewheeling erotic fantasies, intimate portraits, and gleaming lifestyle features. Now, one volume encompasses the full range of that vision. More than 250 full-color photographs, chosen from the ten million images preserved in the Playboy archive, chronicle five decades of brilliant, life-affirming art. Playboy: 50 Years revisits the girl next door, the sex symbols, and the gods and goddesses who shaped our culture. Photographs showcasing the bachelor pad, the perfect cocktail, fashion, and sports cars celebrate Playboy as the ultimate wish book. From the history making red velvet shot of Marilyn Monroe, "posed with nothing on except the radio," to the highly charged images of such masters as Herb Ritts and Helmut Newont, this book is a breathtaking photographic tour de force."
