Item Description...

Valerie Michael—a founding member of the Association of Design Leatherworkers—has created the definitive guide to this popular and age-old craft. Oriented to the beginner, it thoroughly presents all the materials, tools, and key techniques in easy-to-follow photographs: finishing edges, paring and hand-stitching, making pockets, attaching studs and straps, and decorating surfaces. The well-chosen projects take into account developing skills, and range from belt and wallets to quilted items and bags. An invaluable reference work.


“...Instructions are concise enough to offer craft enthusiasts of differing skill levels a range of projects to undertake.”—Booklist.


“Excellent and easy-to-understand introduction to classic leatherworking.”—Library Journal.

A must read for beginners  Apr 28, 2008
I started out working with leather on my own with some help from my local leatherworking supplier. Unhappy with the results I was getting I decided on buying this book and I was not disappointed. The quality of my work is far better now than I could have hoped for. A must read for beginners.
Not Quite The One.  Jan 28, 2008
I found this handbook disappointingly superficial.It makes to many assumptions that the reader is an experienced leather-worker, and is very short on instruction.
This writer has had some expert tutelage from master craftsmen, but I still found a considerable deficit in detail.A pity, as the projests are interesting, but, in most instances, too complex for a beginner.
I could not recommend this book!
A very good book  Dec 26, 2007
I have been very interesting in making purses and other items where building a case is critical. I found this book to be excellent in answering many of my questions. I have found no one book can answer all your questions. A lot depends on reading and working to develop more understanding. This book attracted me because it uses molds to shape form leather into cases. I found the other information in the book very helpful with my projects and developing my skills and ideas.
One of the better leathercraft books available  Nov 14, 2007
This book stands out from the general run of leathercraft books by not being "crafty" (i.e., about making junk) and presenting truly fine workmanship - not the equal of commercial products, but better. It is superbly illustrated and very much to the point. It presents tools, techniques, and projects in order of difficulty. The project items are worthwhile, beautiful, even elegant. No digressions on philosophy or history, no segues into other crafts, no lists of out-of-date websites and suppliers, etc. Buy it. It will elevate your vision as to what's possible.
great book with lots of pictures  Aug 3, 2007
If you thought leather craft was just had tooling on saddles and belt straps...this book will show you how elegant and sophistcated great leather work can be. This book covers all the details and tools necessary to learn all the skills. Well written and well illustrated..highly recommended
