By Robin TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 Jun. 2009
Format: Hardcover
Dian Hanson was the obvious choice to compile this huge leg book. She edited the very successful Leg Show magazine for a number of years and clearly knows everything from the toes to the top of the hose (to quote her friend Elmer Batters). The book follows sexy legs through the decades from the twenties to the sixties, mostly with photos but Hanson contributes text dealing with: cancan; flappers; Betty Grable; Nylons and WW2; Bettie Page; Elmer Batters; high heel history and the last chapter on toes. There is nothing particularly new in the text and the references to personalities and magazines are fully covered in Hanson's six-volume 'History of Men's Magazines', also from Taschen.

The sixties were the great years for male connoisseurs of leg photos and thankfully the book does rather concentrate on those photographically with plenty from ace leg snapper Batters. Dian sums it up as...'a golden age of glossy nylons, stiletto heels, towering bouffants, black patent eyeliner, cigarettes dangling from thickly painted lips, martini glasses clutched by long red nails, and attitude oozing from every pore'. Fans of the genre will enjoy page after page of these hard-edged chicks that are clearly not in the Playboy girl-next-door mold.

The book's production is up to the usual Taschen standards: super design; quality paper; the four hundred plus photos are well printed (with 200dpi) though it occurred to me that many of the photos seemed untrimmed but I guess this would be a minor detail for readers.

'The Big Book of Legs' is the third body-parts title from Hanson and Taschen, after the Big Penis and Big Breasts I wonder what zone will be next?

Received this as a birthday gift and I'm more than a pleased with it. The book is huge and beautiful with a feature slip design (the stockings are printed on the sleeve and cover bare legs!) which is a great little added detail. The photographs inside are fantastic, grouped by decade and accompanied by assorted articles such as biographies of models and photographers of note.

Too many old photos and mainly all black stockings. The underwear is therefore dated because of the age of the photos. I love a leg but this is a disappointing book. With legs, you do not just have to show the models in underwear - a sexy short skirt would be nice occasionally . Only buy if you see at a discount price.

Apart from the obvious fetish value, I think the whole series "The Big Book..." is great given the historical photos. So much better photography was done prior to liquify and airbrush taking charge of our perception of beauty.

I have to limit my purchases of books edited by the delicious Dian Hanson to not more than one a year for obvious reasons.
