Playboy Magazine January 1961 Issue - A Dash of European Flair, Hemingway’s Mind, and a New Year Celebration

July 1, 2023 in PlayBoy 60s by Wyatt Earp

Playboy Magazine January 1961 Issue

 Kick-starting 1961, Playboy's January issue showcases an array of European fashion with "European Fashion Dateline," and takes readers on a delightful journey into the luxury of caviar and champagne in “The Beauties of the Bubbly” and “Caviar.”

Ernest Hemingway speaks his mind in an unguarded opinion piece. For fiction lovers, “Conversation Piece” and “All the Weed in the World” are notable. With the New Year theme, there’s “Retroactive New Year's Resolutions” for a humorous take on resolutions. The issue also flaunts “Well-Developed Property” as Playboy's Playmate of the Month and an exclusive Playmate review pictorial. Further sprinkled with satire, modern living, and a peek into Squaw Valley, this issue is an impeccable blend for the New Year celebrations.

Collectors and enthusiasts can find this issue in vintage magazine shops or through online platforms specializing in vintage publications. Digital versions may also be available.
