Hello and welcome! I am excited to launch my new site, which was inspired by vintage issues of Playboy magazines from the 1970s. I first saw a vintage issue when I was wandering through a Philadelphia flea market and I was struck by how much it looked and read like an issue of the New Yorker sprinkled with some erotic and fashion photography. The photographs highlighted the natural beauty of the models, featured a variety of body shapes and sizes, and the models had colorful personalities, dreams and goals that were captured in the interviews.

I can imagine how erotic it must have been to lounge around on a shaggy bedspread, flipping through the pages of the latest issue and fantasizing about the fresh-faced model in the centerfold. As Lou Reed plays in the background, I can feel the excitement of diving into a political scoop, breezing through some irreverent sex advice, and rounding it all up with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of an iconic musician (the wacky profile of Willie Nelson is a favorite).

I’ve tried to evoke the feel of the sultry 70s with the photographs, copy and design and I hope you enjoy flipping through it as much as I enjoyed putting it all together. Just as a magazine requires a crew to put it together, a host of talented individuals helped me make my vision real: photographer Alex Colby, wardrobe designer Karmella Fiebke (yes, many of the clothes and shoes were actually from the 70s!), make-up artist Elvira Gonzalez, designers Curtiss Hayden and Kristen Winstead, and website designer Tara McKendry of Veda Designs. None of this would have come together so seamlessly without my co-conspirator, Donia Christine. Lots of love and thanks!
