Format: Paperback
This delightful addition to the Erotic Print Society's series of charming miniatures deals with the stockings used by females in the years before the convenience of sheer nylon tights supplanted them. Perhaps the reason for their attraction is to do with the tactile distinction between the smooth tingling of the nylon (and before that silk) and the cooler, softer texture of a woman's upper thigh. Gower is an enthusiast of this form of apparel beyond peer, and he has selected a few score of images which display their erotic undertones. This is not a comprehensive history of design manual, simply an offering to Eros in gratitude for his combination of style and arousal that is delineated in stockings, and it succeeds as a paean of praise. A lovely little book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A tiny little book with illustrations spanning the centuries. A bit of uninteresting commentary thrown in aswell. Not in the slightest bit erotic or, for that matter, interesting...

If you like highly explicit porn this is the book for you, if you want a book about hosiery look for a different book!
