Three excerpts: "The making of bags and purses with leather is one of the oldest and most universal of its uses. The designs for these are almost endless and vary, of course, with the material and use intended." "The aim of this book is to offer a selection of simple and practical shapes, giving the fullest value to the beauty of the material itself rather than emphasising the decoration." "The leather in each case has been chosen as being suitable for the particular bag or purse shown, but alternative leathers of a similar substance and thickness can be used if desired."
