New Book Out
Posted 20 October 2011 - 03:47 PM
Rawhide and Leather Braiding by Enrique Capone.
He is a master braider from Argentina of 15 years experience if I'm not mistaken.
This gentleman was gracious enough to share his knowledge of rawhide and leather braiding with us.
And yes folks he was gracious enough to write it in English for us.
His book is going for $37 .00 & $5.00 shipping and handling in total $42 .00.
I myself consider this very affordable for the wealth of knowledge you will gain from his work.
If anyone is interested in ordering this is what it contains:

Thanks for posting the new book. I've got a several already but I'll pull up the site and see if this one looks like something that I need to add to my collection. Thanks again.
if I'm not mistaken from what I can understand in this new book he has put together his first two books and lots of extras altogether in this new book.
I also have his first two books and I find them very informative.
But this book he had the pictures professionally done and the binding professionally done.
I think this might be the Argentine Book of Knots just kidding on that but that sounds like that would make a great name for a book,
who knows he might name his next book that.
Well one can wish, and one of my wishes was fulfilled I got his third book.
