You may have noticed, as I have, that people seem reluctant to review fetish material on Amazon. Justifiably so. Well, this "Kid" has taken it upon himself to review some foot fetish books he's picked up on Amazon for the benefit of those considering ordering them.
This book is absolutely awful. Clocking in at about 50 pages, it is mostly pictures of details from paintings of the Victorian era, classical Japan and a few bizarre modern ones. Dopp includes a few paragraphs about the history of the concept of fetish, only about half of which pertains to foot fetish...and in this scant material he devotes most of that to a discussion of his opinion that the classical German author Goethe was a foot fetishist. My goodness, this is so interesting.
Beware of the PUBLISHER'S claim that the book is full of enjoyable illustrations. I found myself turning the pages angrily in hopes that there might actually be SOME erotic pictures of female feet. For some inexplicable reason, the author chose mostly pictures of women lying prone with a focus on their lower bodies, or of fully-clothed women in boots sitting on windowsills.
I should have expected no less from a German. Don't get me wrong, I am half German, but as fetishists they're known to delve into the bizarre and esoteric. This is by NO MEANS a book, in my opinion, that will interest any modern American foot fetishist, whether his/her interest lie in the erotic image of the bare foot or in the nature of the fetish itself.
More highly recommended is "Foot: A Playful Biography," which this "Kid" has also reviewed. Or just google "bare female feet" and you might be happier.
