Playboy No. 1: Hot off the press, again
LOS ANGELES—No, you're not having a fever dream. That really is Playboy's inaugural 1952 issue on your newsstand.

As part of its 60th anniversary celebrations, Playboy has released exact replicas of its first issue with Marilyn Monroe on the cover. Everything is the same including the advertorial, the type of staples used for binding and the heavier paper stock that the magazine has since abandoned. The need for a modern UPC code is sidestepped with an easily removed sticker.

If print is dead, some of the walking dead don't look so bad

The reprint costs $9.99, up from the original 50 cents, and will be available on newsstands until July 7. According to Folio, fewer copies have been produced than the magazine's usual monthly circulation, so get yours while you can if you missed it the first time around.
