This book by a well-known handicrafts instructor will teach you the fine art of leather tooling and carving so that you will now be able to make the handsomely crafted leather of handbags, belts, watchbands, and billfolds you have often admired. You will find that custom-crafted leather items are not only easier to make than you may have expected but also offer quite an enjoyable hobby. Many books deal with leatherwork in general but this book is one of the few that concentrate on tooling and carving. The author first introduces the various types of leather and tools, giving complete information on how to identify the superior sections of a hide and how to decide on which kind of leather is best for your purpose: kidskin for gloves, steerhide for billfolds, etc. Twenty-six different leather tools are depicted along with an illustration of the impressions the different kinds of stamping tools make. After this necessary background, the author covers the basic processes of leather crafting from start to finish: cutting and preparing the leather, transferring the design, tooling, carving, lacing, cleaning, dyeing, and finishing. This section is profusely illustrated with line drawings and photographs to make each step easy to master. You are now ready to begin the special projects, for which complete instructions and patterns are provided: bookmarks, key cases, coin purses, watchbands, billfolds, belts, shaving kits, camera bags, handbags, and cowboy accessories are just a few of the things you will be able to make. Hand-tooled leather items are quite expensive on the market, but you will find yourself with substantial savings when you make them yourself. What is more important, however, is that leather tooling and carving is an enjoyable craft that anyone can become adept at ? and this book will provide you with all you need to do just that.

Mit diesem Buch erhalten Sie das E-Book inklusive! Ein Buch, das die Börse zum Beben bringt Michael Lewis, begnadeter Sachbuchautor, lüftet mit seinem neuen Buch "das dunkelste Geheimnis der Börse". Wer an Börse denkt, hat oft ein Bild im Kopf: wild gestikulierende Makler, die unter immensem Zeitdruck Dinge kaufen, um sie gleich wieder zu verkaufen. Doch das ist Geschichte. Die Realität an der Börse sieht anders aus - das Parkett hat längst neue Regeln. Michael Lewis, Wirtschaftsjournalist und begnadeter Sachbuchautor, sorgte mit seinem neuen Buch für ein Erdbeben. Der Erzähler unter den Sachbuchautoren enthüllt die Geschichte einer Gruppe genialer Wall-Street-Außenseiter. Sie haben herausgefunden, wie die Börse zum Vorteil von Insidern manipuliert wird, die ohne Risiko Milliarden absahnen und abends ohne eine einzige Aktie nach Hause gehen. Ein Buch über die neuen "Helden" an der Börse Der Entschluss der "Helden": Sie schaffen ein paralleles System, das sich den raffgierigen "Flash Boys" in den Weg stellt. Lewis bringt Licht in die dunkelste Ecke der Börse. Seine filmreife Geschichte über den Kampf um Geschwindigkeit - auf einem Markt, den zwar keiner sieht, der unsere Wirtschaft aber ernsthaft bedroht - bringt die Wall Street zum Beben. Dieses Buch lässt die Börsenwelt erzittern. Einen Tag nach seinem Erscheinen kündigten FBI und amerikanisches Justizministerium an, sie würden Untersuchungen gegen den von Lewis gegeißelten Hochfrequenzhandel an den Börsen einleiten. Lewis ... - "... hat eine neue Ebene der Aufmerksamkeit erreicht". (FAZ) - ... lässt den "The Wolf of Wall Street" wie ein Lamm wirken. - ... ist der derzeit packendste (Reality-)Thriller über die Finanzwelt gelungen. - ... enthüllt, wie Märkte und Privatanleger manipuliert werden.
