Collapsible content


This coffee table book, the third installment in Dian Hanson's body parts series, delves into the intriguing history of the eroticization of the female leg.

Despite its non-genital nature and structural similarity to the male leg, the female leg was historically taboo and hidden from view.

Hanson explores the liberation of women's legs from the post-French Revolution cancan to the 1960s miniskirt revolution, documenting burlesque shows, flappers, nylon-mania, stiletto heels, and the golden age of leg magazines.

With over 400 photos, the book uncovers the fascinating journey from forbidden fascination to a symbol of women's liberation, featuring captivating images by Irving Klaw, Elmer Batters, and other masters of leg art.
