About Ginger Miller

Ginger Miller is not only an American model but an actress, artist and business woman. This lovely blonde was Penthouse Pet of the Month in September 1986 and Pet of the Year in 1989. She was featured on the Coca Cola cans for Bikini Cola in the 1980's. Not only has Ginger portrayed a Playboy Bunny in the movie A Bunny's Tale but also appeared in a Penthouse video and a few soft core films.

Ginger sculpts, paints, and pens country and western songs. She also creates customized denim and leather jackets.

"A girlfriend and I used to design costumes and bathing suits, then sell them to friends who were models, dancers, and musicians. We became so popular that we decided to open our own store called The Broad Squad Headquarters located in Los Angeles."

 —Ginger Miller

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."
