We currently have our text block ready to go, our leather cover carved, stamped and dyed and we’re left with adding a snap and then sewing the pamphlet together. If you missed the previous parts, the last two posts include: Part I–preparing the text block and cutting the cover; Part II–carving the design and then dying and coloring the cover. Part III will finish it out with putting a finish on the cover, punching the spine holes, setting the snap and sewing the book.
I got a book for the holidays that I just love, so I thought I’d share a bit about it here. It’s filled to the brim with instructions, details and tips for carving incredibly realistic images in leather. But I think this book has value for more than just leatherworkers.
