Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Taylor is a master saddler in England, and his guide to leatherwork reflects the heavy-duty techniques necessary for saddle making. Emphasizing professional tools, stitching, strap making, and tooled decoration, the book includes several projects for military-style bags and accessories. This professional-level title may be too advanced for some hobbyists.
