Digital Playboy Archive For Free
If there is males who have never seen the Playboy magazine nows your chance and its free!
Microsoft, Bondi digital Publishing and Playboy Enterprises bring you 53 classic issues of Playboy all viewable through Microsoft’s Silverlight viewer.
The issues at playboy Archive.com and go back to the 1950s, 60s, 70s and right up to 2007. When the archive first loads, an array of Playboy covers can be viewed and clicked upon and after that, several pages from the inside of the magazine appear. A table of contents is also available, and the archive is searchable. What is amazing is to see how the magazine and styles have changed over the last 50 years. It is easy to understand its appeal as it clearly offered more than the female form and this is clear as you view the pages and articles.
Bondi Digital Publishing who had previously developed the platform for The Complete New Yorker and had to scan and re-type each issue of Playboy. Some boys get all the good jobs!Go on be a devil and take a peek its well worth a visit.
