Leather Braiding

Front Cover
Cornell Maritime Press, 1950 - Crafts & Hobbies - 173 pages
Leather Braiding has stood for more than forty years as the definitive book in its field. Grant's clearly written guide to the art of leather braiding contains detailed illustrations, step-by-step instructions, and a wealth of incidental, fascinating information. It makes accessible, to even the novice, serviceable and recreational uses of leather, from the simple but clever braided button to the elaborate results of thong appliqué. The book includes a historical perspective of leather and its function in society, a chapter on leather braiding tools, and a glossary of terms.
