Hugh Hefner and Alberto Vargas started working together in 1959, he would go on to paint over 152 paintings for the magazine with only a verbal agreement between the two men..
This is an original and exclusive invitation, yearly sent out by Hugh Hefner to his close friends, celebrities and beautiful woman to come party with him in the middle of the summer at his personal residence, the Playboy Mansion.
During the late 80’s and early 90’s, Hugh Hefner took a break from throwing his crazy infamous playboy mansion parties. Believe it or not HEF was officially domesticated, while married to Kimberley Conrad, and having two sons…
But word got around fast in the mid 90’s, Hef was single and ready to mingle, and the Playboy Mansion parties were back, and as dreamy as ever!
However the invitations from the 70’s and 80’s are harder to find, and because of the rarity, more expensive and valuable to collectors.
This 1988 Midsummer Night’s Dream party invite has a custom Pin-up girl design illustrated by artist Joaquin Alberto Vargas y Chavez on the cover.
