Bookbinding Leather, My Preferences and a Formula for Moisturizing and Blind Tooling

After a brief consultation with the audience, I decided to upload this two-month old video regarding my leather preferences.

I hope it proves to be at least a bit helpful as YouTube is currently dominated by leather advice but mostly for leatherworking. Bookbinding leather specifics are kind of left out from the pictures.

As always, take my words with a grain of salt. I’m more than capable of changing my mind in the future. Be sure to consult more professionals regarding this topic and do experiment before investing in expensive pieces of leather.

I mentioned in the video the online gold tooling course by Trevor Lloyd and All About Bookbinding. You can find it here:
