Reviews - What do customers think about Batters 1 (Amuses Gueules)?
Quality but Tiny!! Feb 19, 2005
This book has some great pic's of legs, stockings, and feet, but please please notice the size is SMALL, LITERALLY 3x4 INCHES! If you are looking for a Christmas Tree decoration, this is perfect, but a coffee table book it isn't! Hopefully there are other books out there that exhibit Elmer Batters quality work.
Wonderful photos but *sigh* SIZE does matter... Jun 5, 2002
If you're into this sort of erotic photography (as I am, having discovered Batters' work in LEG SHOW magazine -- BTW, God is a woman and Her name is Dian Hanson, say it with me, guys...), then getting a book of pure Batters photography is a must. But read the specs on this paperback book carefully! The book is smaller than a deck of cards. In fact, its pages are about the size of the screen of a PalmPilot.
I didn't read the specs very carefully and was hoping for a full-size paperback, not the PostItNote-sized book that I was shipped.
That said, it's the only book I know of [other than his CARUSCA SITTINGS similar paperback] that features all Batters' leg/feet photos, and, as I said up front, if you like his work, you know you sort of need to have this. (Who knows, maybe the palm sizing is useful ;-)
If you like toes and hose, this is your book Dec 5, 1999
Elmer Batters does not create fancy, elaborate sets for his models, nor are his models particularly good looking. However, he does know how to pose them (not sexually graphic) to get the best angle on their feet and legs, and from that level his work is honest, straightforward, and very well done. If your fetish runs in this direction, this book (and all the Elmer books) are must-haves.
