Re: Onlay leather work



I looked in many French books about bookbinding and strangely enough, there
is not much said about onlays and inlays.  Basically, there is two different
techniques of onlays.  Thin leather applied and pressed to achieve a smooth
surface and thicker leather, beveled, pasted on the cover and sealed with
"filet cheveux" tools (hair thin gouges) that are designed especially for
that purpose.
The inlays are different as the covering leather is cut out and another
piece of leather is put in the cut out.

Onlays and inlays are part of my teaching and I can organized a one week
workshop whether in my studio or I can travel.
Best Regards to all,
Monique Lallier
