Following the remarkable success of last year's limited deluxe edition, we're pleased to present The Complete Centerfolds in a new compact package. The content remains the same—every Centerfold from every issue. That's over 600 beauties. We've also added the Centerfolds from 2007 to make this Playboy's most complete photographic volume to date. Hefner introduces the book and literary luminaries including Paul Theroux, Jay McInerney, and Daphne Merkin comment on the social mores and cultural climate of each decade. This chronological collection provides an unparalleled view of our evolving appreciation of the female form: from the fifties fantasy of voluptuous blondes to the tawny beach girls of the seventies to the groomed and toned women of today. The Complete Centerfolds is a breathtaking tour de force.

Playboy: The Complete Centerfolds is the best book ever created in all of history.
The only thing that would make it better is an annual update every year to include the most recent centerfold
photographs, and perhaps being able to take each picture out of the book to lay on a flat surface so as to better see all the details. Thanks everyone, for making this book.
The rating should be 500 stars, or more, not just 5. One star for each photograph at least.
World's greatest picture book.
Every author and publisher should take note. This book is the highest and best use of paper, film and binding, that I have ever seen. If you're gonna make a book, you might as well make one as beautiful as this one. The highest standard of quality, beauty and excellence. A beautiful picture is worth more than words can say, and this book is the best roll of film, that I have ever owned.
Truly,
Daniel Jon Sandahl

Seeing the evolution in female pin ups is quite startling in fast forward mode. The soft sensuality and beauty of the years prior to mid 70's and early eighties versus the hard cold sexuality of the ... Read full review
