The Stocking Book navigates the history of stockings from their invention until their present day use and explores the astonishing variety of stockings from the eighteenth century to the present, the way great painters depicted them, the way illustrators and cartoonists made use of them, the way advertisements presented them, and the way they have developed. Complete with full-colored illustrations and cultural commentary, this book provides a delightful history of the stocking and what has made it so classic, so provocative, and so irresistible throughout the ages.
