Levi Johnston Bones Brings Playgirl Back to Print

Some may say print may be dead…but it can be revived. Case in point: Playgirl, which became web-only just one year ago, is suddenly back in print edition, thanks to the highly anticipated Levi Johnston photo shoot. The father of Tripp Palin, the grandson of former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Levi’s career trajectory has basically consisted of “Get naked, get paid.” And while the print Playgirl with Levi consists of no more frontal nudity than its web equivalents, leaked late last fall, it does show how deeply the editors of Playgirl are relying on this particular to inject some interest (and cash) back into their publication.

So why buy the issue at all? Because the cover will become a collector’s item, of course!
