Product Description

Review

"This illustrative study of the female form is a tasteful, colourful romp. Stephen Bayley's thoughts are presented in a witty, ruminative style. There is plenty here that is fascinating and thought-provoking." --The Times

"This book is a bit of a revelation. A great big generous tome, full of sumptuous images of women from Aphrodite to the present day." --Evening Standard

Many books have appeared on the attractiveness of the female figure, but this excellent volume is different, offering a thoughtful and reasoned study of not only attractiveness but the broader implications of the way a woman uses the visual aspects of her body, and the way these aspects are used by others. It is an insightful book, and it is superbly produced, with a novel cover design - a thing of beauty indeed.

For the echo of Donne one can, I suppose, forgive it much, but this is a weighty, pretentious and irredemably naff production. Only a somewhat too long in the tooth bachelor would give it house room.
