Last summer, Jezebel reported that Playboy was preparing to release a special edition of the magazine shot entirely photographer Terry Richardson in February, timed roughly to Valentine's Day. That issue is available for purchase now.

Richardson posted shots of the issue, which was previewed in a regular issue of the magazine last year, on his Tumblr Wednesday. (Images clearly NSFW.) In it, women frolic nude in locations like the Chateau Marmont and Joshua Tree. The spread is called "California Dreamin'"

Richardson's other longstanding clients that have continued to work with him despite years of harassment claims include Harper's Baazar (who just yesterday celebrated the photographer's birthday with a special slideshow devoted to his work on their website) and Rolling Stone.
