This tribute to an unsung part of the body collects a closetful of fascinating lore about the physical foot, foot fashion, and foot fetishism. Author Kathy Vanderlinden has collected every imaginable kind of fact and fancy about this all-important part of the anatomy. She explains the giddy pleasure, the lust, and the therapeutic value of shoes for the shoe lover, with such examples as the stiltlike chopine of 15th-century France, the outlandishly wide duckbill of 16th-century England, and the gorgeous Manolo Blahniks of today. FootÂ’s tantalizing tidbits cover foot rituals, foot fairytales, and foot beauty treatments, illustrated with a wealth of photos of beautiful, grotesque, and sexy shoes; images of the foot in art; famous feet; and foot ornamentation.
