This book contains a classic handbook on the art of decorating leather, with information on tools and equipment, materials, techniques, common problems, and many other related aspects. Profusely illustrated and full of handy tips and invaluable hints, this volume will appeal to anyone occupied in leatherwork, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature.
