Playboy Cover to Cover -- The 50's: Searchable Digitial Archive--Every Page, Every Issueby Playboy, Bondi Digital Publishing (Created by)
What do Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, Jayne Mansfield and Brigitte Bardot have in common? They are the most alluring sex symbols of all time--and they all graced the pages of Playboy in the 1950s. But Playboy wasn't only about beautiful women--it featured serious literature by equally serious writers like Hemingway, Kerouac, Bradbury, and Steinbeck.
For the first time ever, own a DVD–based, searchable digital archive containing Playboy magazine's entire groundbreaking first decade--every issue--every page--cover to cover. This exclusive box set also comes with a 224–page companion coffee table book chronicling the behind-the-scenes history of Playboy.

The product includes the Bondi Reader, powerful MAC or PC browsing software that allows you to view every page and to explore, search, save and arrange multiple reading lists. Every story, feature and interview, and of course every Playmate, can be located in seconds, and then compiled and cross-referenced however you choose. This essential collection is a must for lifelong fans and subscribers of Playboy, nostalgia seekers, history and culture buffs, as well as all lovers of beautiful women.

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.
