"The Playboy take on the good life has always been a simple one: It’s all about what accessories to sport, what drink to order, and what car to drive to get the girl.”
- Hugh M. Hefner
For more than half a century, from the first page of its first issue, Playboy magazine has underscored the “art of smoking.” In that smoky spirit comes “Playboy: The Complete Guide to Cigars.” It seems long overdue.
From the sun-drenched shores of Cuba and the Dominican Republic, to some of the world’s most exclusive stores, this full-color, 142-page hard cover coffee special edition book from Altadis U.S.A. (maker of Playboy cigars) details the life and times of one of the last truly artisanal luxuries. Tracing cigars from their origins in pre-Columbian America, it shows how skilled craftsmen create them from select tobacco leaves, following their journey from seeds to cigar shop, and demonstrates how to choose, store, cut, light, and smoke. Unlike any other cigar book, this one includes highlight from the Playboy playmate archives.
Authored by Aaron Sigmond, founding editor of Smoke magazine and The Cigar Report, and co-authored by Nick Kolakowski, “Playboy: The Complete Guide to Cigars” Special Edition from Altadis U.S.A. is available exclusively in fine tobacconists.
