Waitaminute, I've been brainwashed. This is probably a torrent anyway.
We've heard of guys stashing away their pr0n collections on a covert external storage device, safe from prying eyes, but if you get your mitts on this one, your passion for the pudendic will be immediately obvious to all. US publishing outfit Bondi Digital has released a 250GB drive containing - we pull your plonker not - a …

Please feel free to add anything i've missed out.
to see how the magazine evolved over a period of more than half a century. It'll be a great show of what the body beautiful was with a snapshot taken every issue.
The story of how Playboy's evolved over the years (Man's magazine through near-ladmag levels to the brand on your daughter's lunchbox) is actually pretty interesting, and it would be great to see it happening "as it happenned".
And, to be honest, for 50-something years of literature that'll not just cover women but cars, gadgetry and other such manly obsessions as well as commentaries from people of the day at that time, under £200 isn't that much. I imagine you'd have to spend a fortune to collect that much data over that sort of timeframe in that much detail through any other source.
If it didn't have the hugely obvious bunny on the front I'd be very tempted.
Actually, spray paint could hide that. You know what, I think I'll give myself one* for christmas.
*stop sniggering at the back!
Jokes aside, that's actually a fair point. Playboy published fiction from some pretty impressive authors (including Ursula K. Le Guin), and those of us with a historical outlook appreciate that sort of cataloging.
Yeah, the "Playboy Lifestyle" was always sort of a joke, but one of the reasons people could say "I read it for the articles" is because they actually could read it for the articles.
I really don't know how the author thinks $300 for that many YEARS of back catalogue is expensive. Try buying back issues of ANY magazine...they are usually a few dollars a piece, even if downloaded from the publisher. This gives you about 684 issues, which equates to $0.43 per copy - a relative steal, considering that even the effort to DOWNLOAD (via torrent or legally) this much stuff will cost a fair amount if you value your time at anything reasonable.
And unlike a download, you can be pretty sure that the material is in good shape,even the early years.
So it seems like a decent value, and probably worth it to see just how society has evolved in that time, and the articles.
