Time to Show Off Another Prized Possession

This is exactly what it looks like:  a braille version of Playboy for the blind.  You always thought people were kidding when they said they buy the magazine for the articles — well that’s all you get in this copy.  As my Dad says, it’s a Playboy you can take to church!

A few years ago I was visiting Brian in Cincinnati and noticed that he had one of these.  I thought it was great and asked him where he got it.  He said the Cincinnati public library has a used bookstore attached to it with all sorts of great stuff and that’s where he had found it some time ago.  As a fan of used bookstores, I asked him to take me there.  We went the next day and lo and behold, there was another copy just waiting for me to give it a home so of course I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to purchase it.

Every single page of the thing is white like the second picture shows.  The only printing is what you see on the cover.
