LEATHER WORKING BOOK BIBLIOGRAPHY

(last updated: May, 2019)

There isn't much on this page yet except for some important magazine catalogs. I don't have a large library of leather-working books - I don't run across them all that often. I hope to eventually fix that. For now, I'm making sure my catalogs of the leatherworking magazines I've accumulated over the years are available, for those trying to figure out where/when specific articles and patterns got published. There was a lean period in the late eighties/early nineties where I had to drop all my subscriptions except for my beloved "Workbasket" and I've found a lot of other people must have had to do the same, because it has been ridiculously hard to fill in issues of some things from this time period. If you have a large collection of leatherworking books and magazines you wish to donate or sell, please consider getting in touch with me.
