    Prized by collectors of the magazine, Playboy's first decade is sought after continually. With Bondi Digital Publishing putting this set out, we get a chance to see magazines that only the few with the time and money to track them down have been able to. Every page and issue is here for your enjoyment, with great articles from up and coming authors and cartoonists such as Jack Kerouac and Shel Silverstein. Of course, the girls are there too, but we're all reading it 'for the articles,' right? That said, everything in here is great. The paper reproduction of the first issue is a nice touch and is a joy to read. Playboy Cover to Cover: The 50s is a facinating look at a decade long gone.
