In 1969, the first issue of American Penthouse sold out in a matter of days. England's controversial magazine of beautiful girls, intelligent journalism, and intimate revelations had arrived. Now, on the 40th anniversary of that first sold-out issue, Assouline presents a limited issue collector's edition of the most iconic photographs from the magazine's past four decades. This ultimate volume, presented on art-quality paper, considers, examines, and celebrates the role played by the most notorious magazine of the last century. This book contains nudity: you must be 18 years of age or older to order.
