If you either are, or want to be a saddle builder, this will be a book that youll want to have! Its a hard back, 8 -1/2" x 11" 3 ring binder, with heavy stock paper. In his words, "This is a no-nonsense, no secrets text. A solid foundation of information and ?how to direction. Over 500 detailed photographs, matched with exact text, to lead you through the process of designing and building saddles." For what its worth, in my opinion, this is about the most well done book on saddles that Ive ever seen, and if youre wanting to build, or if you already build saddles, you wont regret this purchase!
