Vintag Playboys at Dovetail

Guys are always saying that they read Playboy for the articles and I never believed them, that is, until Dovetail acquired a small collection of vintage Playboy magazines from the early 1970s. Not only do they have well-written articles with prominet artists (Jane Birken, Salvador Dali, Stanley Kubrik) but they also have some amazing (and sometimes hilarious) print ads. We've included some of our favorites below. These would be great inspiration for art projects, photograpy, or fashion styling.
