Nicki Thomas photographed by Tom Staebler
This white-hot office tryst was designed and photographed by Executive Art Director Tom Staebler. The man wearing the crisp pants is Bill Drendel, a stylist in our Photo Department. The lady wearing the very long legs is March 1977 Playmate Nicki Thomas. The Rabbit on the steno pad has the best view of the situation.
