The third in Dian Hanson’s wildly successful series on erotic body parts, the Big Book of Legs explores how the female leg became central to women’s emancipation, from the French Revolution to the sexual revolution. Filled with images and narrative from the first burlesque shows of the 1800s, to flappers of the 40s, to Betty Grable’s “million dollar legs” and beyond, Hanson covers every aspect of legophilia. Features over 400 stunning color and black and white photos by the likes of Irving Klaw, Peter Gowland, and Elmer Batters, some of fetish’s first disciples.
Edited by Dian Hanson. Hardcover. Multilingual edition. English/German/French. 372 pages.
