    Hef’s balloon letter “R” looks suspiciously like a bunny.

    Cataloguing this collection was really quite amazing. I knew very little of HH other than the obvious…it is amazing what one learns when reading letters that span a 60 year friendship. The collection includes letters, sketches, every holiday card from Playboy (great art), books, music, posters, champagne flutes (from the wedding), etc.

    Jane told me once that “at 16, I knew Hugh was going to do great things-so I kept every scrap of paper he ever sent me.” She did so and the result is a truly exceptional collection.

    I’m only here for the articles, Hugh.
