RAWHIDE AND LEATHER BRAIDING


AND


RAWHIDE AND LEATHER BRAIDING II



         Two years and a lot of brading went by since I wrote my fisrt book "Rawhide and Leather Braiding". During this time I was gathering material for a second book which I just finished writing. The new book is called "Rawhide and Leather braiding II". This new book is a little bit more advanced that the previous one.

        Both of my books are easier to follow than the majority of the books I have seen about leather braiding. I see people every day trying to learn from books that explain, in only one drawing, a complete technique. They get frustrated and they don't want to keep learning this beautiful art of leather braiding.



         Both books are professionally printed in black and white and they contain hundreds of pictures.
