Beautiful Centerfold Book, hubby loved it.
by SueAnne (5 out of 5 stars)
January 3, 2018

Bought the other one for my husband, & then I saw this one. So I bought it. Much Bigger photos in this one, book layout is better. It weighs easy over 10 lbs, very Heavy. Great quality paper & so colorful, it came really fast! He enjoyed the 80's, He loved going down memory lane. He knew all the names still. He's 55. Got him the latest subscription to PB..Yawn! according to him. Older pictorials are the only good thing. He really Loved this Centerfold book. SEXY photos of beautiful nude women in a classy way...what more could a guy want! He prefers the bustier ones. Lol. Now if I could find him a book of nothing but pictorials. Any suggestions? It is Worth the $50.

... all the more to the credit that a book like this should have come out
by Robert Abel (5 out of 5 stars)

After the despised decision to discontinue centerfolds in the nude it is all the more to the credit that a book like this should have come out. Here, in all their glory are the women who made PLayboy what it was. Everyone of them! The pictures are as fresh as when they were first published and each one reveals the beauty of the female form. These are the girls next door as the late Hugh Hefner once said. For all of you who enjoyed the magazine, and those who dreamed about them I can recommend this beautiful book.

Beautifully rendered

Bought this as a birthday present for my boyfriend; ever since Hugh Hefner died, he's been talking about how much he admired him and his contributions to sexual liberation in the US. I was a little nervous, because this book really is just each month's centerfold and nothing else, but it's beautifully produced, and it's really fun to look through and see styles change. The 2000s were a rough, fake time, man... We looked at the girls from the months we were born and all sorts of other important moments in our lives and in history; even when I tried to leave and do other stuff, he kept calling me back to look at more of them. He absolutely loved it!

Amazing history here in the form of beautiful nude women... It's also cool to see the history of pubic hair trends from the 50s onward.

This shiz is legit! Got it for my boyfriends Valentines Day present. He LOVED it and actually all of my friends have been having a hay day looking through this book. Its like a time capsule of pube eras! Its nuts! I think my girlfriends have spent more time looking at it at this point then him and his guy friends even. Its an all around hit. And super heavy, like need two hands to hold it and look at it. But what a crowd pleaser!

Stunning addition to any personal library
by Frederic (5 out of 5 stars)

I really love the quality of the prints throughout this lovingly assembled time capsule. You really get to appreciate the different decades of Playboy with smart introductions, and vivid presentations of the ladies who shaped an empire for men and women to appreciate. I will be pursuing additional collections like this one from PB as they have proven to care about quality and value with this volume.
