,At last! A leatherworking book for amateurs by a top professional. Valerie Michael, a founder member of the Association of Design Leatherworkers, has been a full-time leatherworker for over twenty years, and this book contains the very best of her knowledge and experience. After a really thorough presentation of each of the key techniques - such as finishing edges, paring and hand stitching, making pockets, attaching studs and straps and decorating surfaces - there are ten projects, suitable for developing levels of skill, from belts and wallets to quilted work and three different types of leather bag. Not only is this book an ideal introduction to a centuries-old craft, but its comprehensive treatment of materials, tools and techniques makes it an invaluable work of reference.
'The information is presented in a very clear and well illustrated fashion, with plenty of photographs to help the reader through each project.' The Craftsman
'...a complete guide for anyone wanting to take up the crafts.' Popular Crafts
