Whips and Whipmaking, Paperback / softback Book

Whips and Whipmaking Paperback / softback


Whipmaking is the highest refinement of the art of leather braiding.

This revised edition introduces another major category of whipsathose made in the Mongol tradition.

Braiding details are shown in an extensive selection of photographs that also serve to document the geographic distribution of the whips; their historic use and characteristics are explained in detailed captions.

A new chapter describes the evolution of a whip design that became world famous through its association with Hollywood.

The whips used by Indiana Jones were all made by the author, David W.

Morgan, and the films prompted an immediate revival of interest in whips for performance and sport use.
