Bunny Birthday photographed by Tom Staebler
In honor of the 20th anniversary of the Playboy Clubs, Executive Art Director Tom Staebler and Senior Art Director Len Willis have positioned the accouterments of the basic Bunny outfit to resemble our very own Rabbit. You might call it a bunnyrabbit. We thought it was cute. But not as cute as the 14 pages of real Bunnies you'll see in Bunny Birthday (page 144). You'll wish you were Peter Cottontail.
