4.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all, doesn't it?, March 21, 2006
By 
This review is from: Sexy Legs and Typewriters (Paperback)
What's not to like? Two perennially favorite topics joined under one cover. There's nothing hardcore to be found within, just (almost) family-friendly cheesecake from decades past. If you really need an excuse to buy it, the book serves as an interesting survey of a broad variety of advertising techniques--if by broad we consider only those techniques that subscribe to the theory that a picture of a pretty girl never hurts sales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where the Skin meets the Steel, November 15, 2004

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Sexy Legs and Typewriters (Paperback)
Paul Robert, the internationally known typewriter collector, restoration expert and historian is having a bit of fun and we're all invited to join in and take a peek!

Sexy Legs and Typewriters chronicles the history of women in typewriter advertising materials.

Paul begins with a very early ad depicting typewriter inventor C. Lathom Sholes' prim and proper daughter, Jenny, encased in a victorian bodice and layer upon layer of skirts.

Don't despair! The models get prettier and more scantily-clad as you progress through the text.

Of course, you understand, some of us bought the book for the wonderfully detailed photographs of the typewriters!!

This is erotica at its very best!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun and Thoughtful Book, November 15, 2004
This review is from: Sexy Legs and Typewriters (Paperback)
Paul Robert's "Sexy Legs and Typewriters" is both fun and thoughtful. Photographic and advertising graphics are combined with the author's commentary to create a history of the changing perceptions of women as clerks in the offices of North America and Europe during more than a century.

The book can be read on several levels. Of course, the large number of mostly unpublished graphic images alone are enough to make this book an enjoyable peruse. But, in combination with Paul Roberts' interesting discussions, the graphics make this book an essential companion to many other books on the development of popular business culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful gift idea, November 15, 2004
This review is from: Sexy Legs and Typewriters (Paperback)
Sexy Legs and Typewriters is a wonderful pictorial look at typewriters and type writers from the first half of the twentieth century, before word processors and computers took over. A great gift idea for anyone who worked in an office during that time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sexiest gift idea and a must have for any man!, November 14, 2004
This review is from: Sexy Legs and Typewriters (Paperback)
This book is truly awesome: it's a unique get together of information on the early history of office machines and on the changes of women, costumes and advertising!

Congraturations to the author for putting together such an impressive collection of erotica in the office!

Not only I loved this book as a typewriter collector but it became a perfect gift idea: all my friends loved it... Especially for the wonderful nudes!
