One of the results of mass production is the erosion of traditional craftsmanship and, in time, the loss of the craft itself. The author has given us in this book, a permanent record of the craft of saddle making. Using only hand tools and traditional methods, he demonstrates step-by-step how a saddle is made without recourse to machinery of any kind. The text is clearly written throughout, and complemented with both photographs and line illustrations showing the various stages of manufacture. The books should prove helpful not only to apprentice and journeymen saddlers, but also to those without any specialised knowledge.
