The Big Book of Legs

The Big Book of Legs, from Taschen author Dian Hanson, is thick with photos of famous and not-so-famous female gams. The accompanying text chronicles the history of the long-eroticized limbs, from the Victorian era—when simply uttering the word legs was considered indecent­—to the 1950s, with its leg-liberating stilettos.
