This is a beautiful hard back book of 160 pages, published by Barrons of New York.
Originally published in Spanish, it was reprinted in English in 2008.
This title covers a broad range of subjects from leather in art and history to the tanning processes that are used to create leather from a raw hide.
It talks you through the tools and materials that are used alongside leather and the techniques used to cut, stamp, emboss, mould and stitch your leather, as well as a wide range of decorative finishes.
There are start to finish project tutorials too, all with plentiful full colour photographs.
This is a real keepsake book for anyone who is fascinated by leathercraft and would make a fabulous gift!
