Think of history's greatest combos - peanut butter & jelly, Lennon & McCartney, Simon & Simon. Surely, the miniskirt & book ranks among them. You have great works of fiction flanked by great works of fashion. Great Books alongside Great Looks. High Art complementing High Hemlines. Legs 'n' Libraries.
So, I've decided to post a bunch of miniskirted gals and their reading materials. I've got so many to send your way, they won't fit in a single post. So, enjoy Part One!
There's something special about a mini at a library. Maybe it's because things are quieter and move slower there, giving ample opportunity to focus. And a librarian in a mini?..... don't get me started. It's a miracle youth in the early seventies managed to get anything done at the library with such distraction.
He's got the beatnik beard, turtleneck and corduroy jacket.... hence the self-satisfied expression. I can't help but wonder whether he's supposed to be reading along with them but has his mind on other things. Every rose has its thorn, and the miniskirt is no exception with its power to occupy and melt the male brain.
Evidently, the biography section was a popular spot for girls in minis. The Dewey Decimal System never looked so good.
The young man's face in the back appears to be bursting with joy. Indeed, he may have grown up to be a loser, but on this day he was truly king of the world.

If you're paying attention, the hemlines of these library chicks are ridiculously high. I'm not sure how the gal in the back functioned without exposing something. This fella has a lot to smile about.
Ah, yes. I read the hell out of MAD back in the day. Seeing this has inspired me to perhaps do some MAD magazine posts - Cracked and Crazy weren't too shabby either. This picture of MAD and two minis surely ranks as a favorite miniskirt photograph.
Mental Note: Remember to make notes after I scan pictures. If I had, I might know what the hell is going on here. I looked up the book "Living Letters" and there's some religious texts that may correspond to the book he's holding. However, it doesn't explain her reaction. Any guesses?
