Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Leatherwork is a centuries-old craft which is as absorbing and enjoyable today as ever. This book introduces the basic tools and techniques needed before explaining more advanced ideas for designing and decorating leather—such as curving, stamping, and coloring—as well as the care and repair of leather. With an easy-to-follow text, step-by-step photographs, and explanatory line drawings, this practical book describes how to use those techniques to make handmade items with a professional finish.
