An illuminating look into heritage industries that go back to prehistoric times. Starting with an analysis of the industry today and the risks facing it, the book goes into great detail about how leatherworking and tanning has evolved through difference periods in history. . .
... If you want to understand the history behind these ancients crafts, then this book is highly recommended as well as extremely accessible - especially if, like me, you have no prior knowledge of the trades. If any of your ancestors were involved in leatherwork or tanning, then this book will give you a great glimpse into their day-to-day life.
