  1. I just stumbled onto this blog recently. Excellent work sir, and congratulations on the milestone!

    I was particularly fond of the 70s era Penthouse photography - are there any decent-sized book collections of these?

    I ordered this set of books since they were cheap but they are smaller pictures:

  2. Sadly, unlike Playboy, Penthouse never published retrospective books. The best bets are some of the Girls of Penthouse compilations that sometimes come up on eBay (although UK eBay only permits pre 1980 issues).

  3. Didn't you once promise us another round of Tom Poulton's work?

  4. Funny, I was thinking that just this morning but it will probably be over on my Venus observations blog. I'll try to do something this week.

  5. Thanks for the recommendations.
