Cartoons were an essential feature of Playboy magazine as early as its first issue in 1953. The journal's brilliant cartoonists were held in high esteem by its editors and, as "artists", enjoyed a status equal to that of the "writers". Their commentaries on the current issues of the fifties and sixties were saucy and provocative. Their wit and their drawing skill set new standards and earned them the highest awards. The more than 130 cartoons featured in this book map out the broad spectrum of styles and themes that capture the Zeitgeist of the fifties and sixties with humour and intellectual acuity. This is the first publication to present cartoons from the early pioneering days of Playboy magazine to a broad public in Germany and Europe. Featured artists: Robert "Buck" Brown, Jack Cole Jack Davis Eldon Dedini John Dempsey Jules Feiffer John Bernard "Bud" Handelsman Harvey Kurtzman/Willy Elder Arnold Roth Shel Silverstein Francis Willford Smith Erich Sokol Gahan Wilson
