Show synopsis As legendary as the Playboy Playmates themselves are the mansions where hundreds of them partied, worked, and lived. Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has led a Caesar-like existence unlike anyone else in the 20th century, and for the first time, the doors to that world are opened to the public in this titillating visual tour of the Chicago and Los Angeles pleasure palaces. Overflowing with archival photographs from Hefner's private collection, the book exposes not only Playmates, celebrities, and luxurious attractions such as the game rooms, the alluring pool and grotto, and the private zoo, but it also depicts an unparalleled, almost mythic lifestyle. By revisiting the fantastical events hosted there over the years, it becomes evident that the Playboy Mansion boasts one of the most enviable guest sign-in books in contemporary times. Of course, the history of life inside the mansions offers a rarely-seen side of the history of the magazine as well.
