The Little Book of Legs

from Taschen

Spanning six decades, from the first shy emergence of the ankle in the 1910s, through the rolled stockings and rouged knees of the 1920s, to the Betty Grable 40s, the stockinged and stilettoed 50s, on into the sexually liberated 60s and 70s. From Betty Grable to Bettie Page, the greatest legs of the 20th Century can be found within, shot by Irving Klaw, Bunny Yeager, and the incomparable Elmer Batters, father of leg art. There are silk and nylon stockings, high heels in abundance, curvy calves, taut thighs, playful toes and towering arches with no bothersome text to get in the way. Could leg love get any sweeter?
