By Ryan Yeung on October 23, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This book had got tons of excellent pictures and articles. It covers all items of the lingerie family; everything from the corsets, bras, camisoles, to the panties. It serves well either as a reference book or as a coffee table piece.

"Lingerie: A lexicon of style" is an outstanding photography book in a coffee table sized format. The narrative covers all of the standard female undergarments: corsets, panties, bras, etc. The photos are tastefully done with some interesting photographic effects (grayscale, colorizing, lighting). Even if it wasn't such a mesmerizing topic, the photography makes the book stand out.

The tags recommended by Amazon.com such as "erotica" give the book a smutty connotation - it definitely is not soft-core porn, or anything similar. However, it will be a definite conversation started when guests arrive.

Worth the cost if you're interested, or have a good collection of photography books.
