I was a little taken back when I opened this book to read it. The text looks like it has come straight off a type writer on 30 year old paper.
Once I got used to the text style and the bunched together writing I soon realised that this book is actually very good. It certainly shows you how to make buckskin using the 'dry scrape method'. I am yet to try dry scraping but when I do ill have this book by my side.
What is also nice is that clothing and accessory design gets more coverage than most books which typically just leave you with a piece of buckskin saying 'and now you could make trousers, a top or a bag... go and work out how to do it for yourself'
A good book if you intend to learn dry scrap brain tanning which is also useful (and an interesting read) if like me, you are a wet scraper.
