it was a chill day and with the hounds of spring lagging a hell of a long way behind winter's traces when a group of us from editorial, art and picture departments convened before the crackling fire in the playboy mansion's fireplace to braindoggle this issue's cover. some hours later, with visions of summer icumen in after all, the meeting adjourned. some hours later, with several tons of sand spread on on our studio floor and five lovely naiads basking 'neath the lights in bikinied and bunniform array, this july cover was shot to celebrate high summer and the pleasures that pertain thereto.
