    I am enjoying learning from Lisa’s newest boot. It is full of “how to” information that gets your own creative mind working as well as valuable and informative instruction. Not to mention is a nice coffee table book for enthusiasts.

    This book is loaded with information and beautiful color pictures. I took Lisa’s Inlay/Overlay class in Sheridan at the leather trade show. The book adds even more information and many ideas. Very detailed information to learn the art of Inlay and overlay! There are no other books I know of on the subject. I love this book!

    Just received my copy of Lisa’s new book, Outstanding! I don’t make boots but many other leather items, chaps, chinks, purses etc. and will be able to apply many of her techniques.
    Her book is very well done, beautiful clear pictures and easy to understand. Highly recommend for anyone’s library.
    Thank you Lisa for such a great book! Judy

    Kathleen and I have been truly grateful for your inlay book. You’ve outdone yourself…amazing work as always. Not only is the information inspirational, the quality of the photos, binding and paper are destined to make this book last a lifetime or more. Thank you!

    Your book is excellent. It’s going to be the textbook of laying leather, like Bruce Grant wrote the one on braiding. The book is full of illustrations, explanations, and practical advice. I’m so glad these important techniques have been documented so the info isn’t lost for future generations, and you did it really well. (Insert applause here) I’m only on chapter 4 but I will do a formal review and pin it on the forum. You really hit this one out of the ballpark! Kudos! Well done! You rock, Lisa!
