Splendid Slippers: A Thousand Years of an Erotic Tradition

by

For a thousand years, Chinese mothers tightly bound the feet of their daughters and encased them in tiny, exquisitely embroidered slippers. How and why did this torturous tradition evolve and continue into the 20th century? Beverley Jackson's vast collection of photographs and a prized collection of "splendid slippers" create a uniquely poignant and evocative portrait of Chinese culture. Full color throughout.
