What do Maisonneuve and Playboy have in common?
Both are award winners

Both publish great fiction

Both know how to turn bad news into good news

When Maisonneuve was confronted with being forced to polybag their magazine because of some, well, nipples as part of a black and white photo essay, they made it a virtue with a clever polybag treatment. The issue was a huge hit on newsstands, and won the cover of the year at the Canadian Newsstand Awards.

As embarrass ing as it must be to the legendary Hef, the sticker that was attached to newsstand copies is sure to drive sales too. Derek and Hef… two magazine legends.
