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.
From the Publisher:
Explores the origins and history of the Chinese practice of binding the feet of young girls, discussing the social, aesthetic, and cultural reasons for the practice

Praise

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"'Splendid Slippers' does not serve to judge nor fetishize foot binding anew but succeeds rather in opening a window, however painful, however beautiful, to the past." - May-Lee Chai 04/12/1998
