JACK KEROUAC AND THE PLAYBOY BUNNY (1959)
My comrade over at Include Me Out featured his January 1965 issue of Playboy the other week. In a game of blogging Top Trumps I present my June 1959 edition. A Playmate and the Playboy Bunny riding Lambrettas on the beautifully designed front cover; a four page Vespa photo feature inside; plus a four page article by Jack Kerouac entitled The Origins of the Beat Generation. “Woe unto those who spit on the Beat Generation,” he warns, “the wind’ll blow it back.” Miss June enjoys hunting and water-skiing.
