Beginning with Marilyn Monroe herself and including such favorites as Pamela Anderson, Anna Nicole Smith, and Jenny McCarthy, this chronological look at the history of Playboy centerfolds includes photos of the Playmates as well as updated personal information about their lives to this day - just enough to spark your memory or pique your interest and surely leaving you yearning for more...
Direct from the Playboy archives comes an incredible collection of the world's most popular men's magazine's main attraction: thousands of photographs of 512 gorgeous Playmates.
Every single one of the Playmates is featured with memorable (and some never previously published) shots of their famous Playboy magazine appearances, and many include up-to-the-minute capsule biographies. Particularly intriguing is the fact that Hugh Hefner has opened up his private, never-before-seen personal photo albums, and he provides reminiscences about the women he knew whom the rest of the world could only dream about. The Playmate Book is a surefire hit for every man waiting to rediscover the women he grew up with.
