Playboy has put 53 back issues online: 1954-2007

At Playboy Archive. [via PC Magazine]

Requires installing Microsoft Silverlight viewer (their competition to Flash, some sort of browser plugin); so probably won't work on non-Windows platforms. Also, it's not full screen view, though pan is allowed. I assume these are US editions. I haven't seen yet, but at least I now have a good reason to install Silverlight.

This is not entirely off topic, since Playboy has also published some of the most interesting science fiction. I suppose there will be relevant fiction in those issues too, apart from its appeal to sinners.

This archive has been around nearly a month. I've known about it for a while, but forgot linking.
