Overview

The greatest adult magazine in history turns 40! England's controversial magazine of beautiful girls, intelligent journalism and intimate revelations is being celebrated in this 40-year retrospective, limited collector's edition—an exalting compilation of Penthouse's imagery in a work of provocative design.

In 1969, the first issue of American Penthouse sold out in a matter of days. England's controversial magazine of beautiful girls, intelligent journalism, and intimate revelations had arrived. Now, on the fortieth anniversary of that first sold-out issue, Assouline presents a limited-issue collector's edition of the most iconic photographs in the magazine's past four decades. Famous names and faces, and beautiful, art-inspired photography all chronicle the libido of a changing nation and its expressions of eroticism. From its earliest days, Penthouse has reflected and pursued America's deepest desires, serving as both the instigator and mirror for women's evolving views of their own sexuality. This ultimate volume, presented on art-quality paper, considers, examines, and celebrates the role played by what has to be the most notorious magazine of the last century.
