Synopsis: This book is an eclectic gathering of facts, theories, and pictures aimed to show how craftsmanship in leather had developed from early times and spread into many field of use, each with its own techniques and skills, yet linked by a community of interest in fundamental mastery of material, methods and tools.
The reader is first provided with a brief, non-technical information of what leather is and how it is made, followed by glossaries of many different kinds of leather, with brief descriptions of processes and tools and the language used in these trades.
Leather objects of the different applications are divided into four groups, representing the principal ways in which leather is used in construction. Examples for each section typify the particular method, including photos.
