I was at the flea this weekend and happened on a bunch of old playboy magazines from the 60's & 70's. I started flipping through them thinking there must be great ads and swimwear to. I wasn't wrong. I've been having fun looking at these and taking some quick images & adding them to my Instagram feed. But, I figured you might enjoy some of what I'm enjoying. So here we go into the land of fashion, illustration, advertising and might I say photography from the 60s & 70s as seen in Playboy Magazine.
First up, July 1972. Cover photography by Robert Harmon. This one is on my nightstand now so I can read the articles. This one especially.
Subtitle: A Revealing History of Lingerie.
You can click on the images to enlarge for the detail.
Flipping through I come across a spread entitled "So it's a bracelet, what's it to ya?" featuring none other than Mr. Burt Reynolds and Mr. James Caan. This image of James is from his Godfather time frame. While Burt had been starring in Deliverance. That's a Gucci necklace Burt has on, just $510. at the time.
And just as kismet would have it, I came across this playboy linoleum cut in my 'stuff'. You know something is going to come out of all of this.
And the one in the top right corner?
I plan to start posting at least one or two images or maybe just have some fun sharing with you so stay tuned!
