The man behind the famous Playboy Bunny logo.

In 1953, Hugh Hefner was in the process of developing the first issue of his magazine "Stag Party", he needed an Art Director and contacted freelance graphic designer Art Paul.

Hefner was seeking a sophisticated look for his magazine, after several issues, Paul and Hefner created the first issue of "Playboy" as Paul created the famous look of the magazine. The profile tuxedo bow-tie wearing bunny was developed by Paul for Playboy's 2nd issue. Mainly, it was intended for the endpoint of each article, but it was then opted as the official logo and has appeared ever since.

There is a running joke in the magazine which involves hiding the logo somewhere in the cover art or photograph.

Here are a few sexy Playboy covers ... can you find the bunny?! (without getting too distracted by the hot babes)
