Things don’t look so great for the bunny brand these days, but Hugh Hefner’s publishing legacy has long transcended his magazine’s scintillating pages. Historic and heyday Playboy is revisited in a new illustrated autobiography, showcasing the magazine’s first 25 years. Through photos and vignettes, the six-volume, $1,300 collection traces Hef’s early start as a comic collector through the height of the magazine’s influence. [via porhomme]
