L'Arbre de la Vie - The Tree of Life by MilleCuirs L'Arbre de la Vie - The Tree of Life by MilleCuirs
This is a custom book made as a Christmas gift. The client's siblings wanted to have their animal symbols marked on the spine for their father. Tree design is inspired by a long time family tree symbol. It was a real pleasure and a unique opportunity to create this book for them! I'm told the book will be used as a sketchbook, notebook and photo album! I wish I could see what the inside of the book looks like in a couple of years!

What leather is this? I've seen it before, I just can't place it...
Kangaroo? Sheep?

I heard that lambskin can be very delicate and not durable, is there truth to this?
Is your lambskin vegetable-tanned? or is there another tanning process involved?

They are industry tanned! Lambskin is delicate, but as durable as any skin! It can be work into any shape since the hide is so thin. For a book it is more than durable. For an armor, I would not try it! I know that leather for covering chairs, it is suggested that people use Pig skin, since it is thin, but tougher than lamb.

I've bound books in pig skin and cow hide, I prefer the cow, since it's much softer. Unfortunately, it's also thick and mushy on the back side. Where do you get lambskin? I'd love to find a good source.

I get them from CuirsDesrochers www.cuirsdesrochers.com/ You can order online, but the experience of going there is amazing. They have huge storage rooms filled with hides. Biggest leather distributor from eastern Canada.
