About Elizabeth Ann Hilden
Tall, busty, and shapely blonde bombshell Elizabeth Ann Hilden was born on November 4, 1973 in Independence, Missouri. Elizabeth was the Pet of the Month in the June, 1995 issue of "Penthouse." She was voted Pet of the Year in 1997.
Hilden not only appeared in several "Penthouse" videos, but also was featured in such men's magazines as "Taboo," "High Society," "Leg World," and "D-cup." Moreover, Hilden posed for soft-core photo shoots for noted glamor photographer Suze Randall which included some leg fetish material. In the wake of her "Penthouse" stint Elizabeth returned to her native Independence, Missouri and started her own business: She owns and runs the tattoo shop Purgatory Tattoos with her tattoo artist boyfriend Chris Melchert.
About Bob Guccione
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."
