Whipmaking as a craft, the highest refinement of the art of braiding, is the main emphasis of this work. It refers primarily to the Australian and American practice, although there is some reference to English and other usage. The techniques used by whipmakers are described, and maintenance and repair are presented in explicit detail. For the beginning and amateur braider the basic procedures in leather braiding are show step-by-step with sixty-one illustrations liberally embellishing the text.
