Description

Bespoke Shoemaking – Handmade Footwear ( ISBN 0-9802937-0-7 )
Bespoke Shoemaking – a comprehensive guide to handmade footwear is the first modern book to cover this fast growing area of interest. The author – Tim Skyrme, is a highly regarded Australian craftsman and teacher of hand shoemaking. The book has taken 10 years in production and grew out of a small book written to help Tim’s hand shoemaking students. The 300 pages cover the details of making shoes by hand, from measuring the feet, to handing over the finished footwear to the customer. However, shoemaking is a very practical subject to learn from a book. That is where the 704 photographs and drawings are so valuable. Virtually everything is illustrated in detail. For many years people have been asking for a book on hand shoemaking. This 2006 production has become the standard textbook throughout the world.
