Cod skin: <http://www.philobiblon.com/pdvgal/origins.jpg> - used as onlay
Eel skin: <http://www.philobiblon.com/pdvgal/CentroDelBelLibro.jpg> - used as trim
Snake skin: <http://www.philobiblon.com/pdvgal/laermig.jpg> - used for spine

Descriptions of these bindings can be found at <http://www.philobiblon.com/pdvgal/pdvgal.htm> with links to the images.

I also have some salmon skins, cod, eel, turkey, chicken, sting-ray, shark, kangaroo to work with. This is in addition to the goat and calf leather and vellum/parchment I have.
