Comments for Legs Talk: Let Your Legs Do the Talking

Legs TalkLegs Talk: 02/27/09

Legs Talk is described on the book's website as the perfect gift for a "leg man" and the perfect "get-over-him" gift. The book exists somewhere in the realm of graphic novel for leg fetishists to a very silly book of photographic portraits.

In black and white photographs of legs and feet the story unfolds. It begins starkly with white text on black: "In the beginning there were legs." The legs have gone shopping. They are shown wearing fufu shoes and are next to a pair of boutique shopping bags. From there she meets (off page) the legs man.

For the most part, the legs man is never seen. There are hints at who he is by how the legs are dressed and posed and the props too. The few photos of the legs man are clearly a woman dressed for the role. One can either see it as Legs dressed as her counterpart or as a separate character portrayed by the same model.

If one takes the text literally, the it's a case of girl meets boy. Boy and girl have a few good times together before boy turns out to be really creepy. Girl dumps boy. Boy tries to weasel back into girl's life and girl almost lets him.

Legs Talk is 112 pages long, most of which are photographs. The text takes up maybe a dozen pages. It's funny and disturbing at the same time. It can easily be read in about ten minutes but it's one of those odd books that has stuck in the back of my mind.

Learn more about the book at the Legs Talk website. Read other reviews at: The Bookworm, Never Without a Book, Marta's Meanderings, Morbid Romantic and Book Love Affairs.

Wonderful. The book is still in print so it should be easy to find online or through your local favorite book store if your library doesn't have a copy.
