The first volume of this work illustrated all the important flat plait as well as a number of interesting small knobs and knots.
This second volume deals with the round knots, those knots which are designed to wrap around any object that needs covering. Even a book this size only touches on the subject but it attempts to cover all the popular knots and some complicated ones for people who enjoy a challenge.
Illustrating a round knot can be difficult, as half the knot is hidden at the back of the work, but this book leaves no steps hidden. The job is flattened so that everything is visible.
Takes a bit of getting used to, but well worth it.
Also a heavy book, and spiral bound to lay flat while you work from it.
A book for the complete beginner. How to buy leather, set up with basic tools, apply a design and colour the leather. Simple lacing techniques and a few easy projects to get you going. Some designs included.
