Book compiled from articles from the site KINGSMERE CRAFTS.
These pages are merely an introduction to hand-crafted leatherwork, in the hope that those reading them, having a desire to create in this unique and interesting material, will be inspired to do so. They are also intended to be (at least within the limits of my knowledge) a source of reference regarding leather in general. My website is not offering things for sale, and you won't find pages full of advertising. It is a site to share with you whatever leather-craft knowledge I have acquired. Seeking to supplement this with a visit to a local bookstore I found nothing. The local libraries produced the same result. So I turned to the internet. I found snippets of information here and there but spent hours jumping from one place to another. Frustrated, I decided to do something about it, and created this site. I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy putting it together. Now, a word on accuracy. During my researches I came across masses of contradictory information and to the best of my ability I have tried to make this site as accurate as possible.
Unfortunately, the site is not working at the moment. Articles can be viewed at the link in the WEB archive.
