Victoria Johnson 8 by 10 inches Penthouse Pet of the Year publicity head shot.

Model:
Victoria Lynn Johnson was Pet of the Year in 1977, and has a memorable body most cannot forget measuring 36-23-36. Besides her modeling, beauty contest, and television credits, she is an accomplished actress with three movies (two starring roles) to her credit. In fall of 1977 Vicki was featured in ABC's "Special Edition".
Photographer:
In 1965, Bob Guccione, a struggling artist with an entrepreneurial imagination, started a magazine called Penthouse. Due to his lack of resources, Guccione personally photographed most of the models for the magazine's early issues. He spent long hours, and sometimes, several days, to complete a photo shoot. Although he had no professional training, Guccione applied his knowledge of painting to his photography, establishing the diffused, soft focus look that would become one of the trademarks of the magazine's pictorials. These images offered more sexually explicit content than other gentleman's magazines of the era, establishing Penthouse as a well known name amongst its competitors.

Although Bob Guccione's formal training amounts to a one-month stint at the Art Students League, his entire life has revolved around the art world since the age of 5, when his aunt gave him a book of impressionist reproduction. As a young man living in Europe and North Africa, he furthered his artistic pursuits by painting and sketching for over 20 years. His sense of light, form, and movement can be attributed to the past 30 years he has spent behind the camera lens. Finally his lifelong acquisition of old-master, impressionist and post-impressionist works has greatly influenced his use of inert color. Although he is known primarily as a businessman, and owner of GMI and its 17 publications, he states that "my greatest passion has always been art." Featured Video:
