Original nude 1979 35mm Slide of Penthouse model Joanne Latham by Bob Guccione #256 Model:
Joanne Kandy Latham is a former English glamour model. Her statistics were quoted as 36-23-36. In 1979 the two major Men's magazines, Playboy and Penthouse, fought a very publicized battle over her for the first nude pictures. Latham signed a contract with Bob Guccione and Penthouse which promised a fee of £70,000 for her to appear in the 10th Anniversary edition. Latham adorned nineteen pages of the magazine. That edition made U.S. history, selling more in Dollar percentage than any other magazine to date and making a profit of $18 million.After a brief affair with Guccione Latham's contract was terminated with Penthouse Magazine when she fell in love with Guccione's son. After she moved from New York to Los Angeles and briefly became the girlfriend of Hugh Hefner living in the Playboy Mansion. In the early eighties Latham returned to England to her Midland home in the village of Tettenhall."Looking at my figure," said the astonishingly sumptuous British beauty, Joanne Latham, when she first burst onto our pages, "you might say I've had more than a bit of blooming luck!" Eyeing her resplendent 40-23-36-inch form, we'd say that the luck is all ours. She refuses to let mass adulation turn her pretty, flaxen head, however. "My friends nicknamed me 'Shuga' because of my sweet disposition," she maintains, " and I intend to stay nice-though someday the right man might come along and persuade me to be a little naughty." Still just under a tender 20 at the time, Shuga admits she has yet to get sweet on one particular man. 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. Format:
