Well, there's always Tandy Leather and its myriad outlets. I am new to
bookbinding and bought one of their $3.99-sq-ft "senior calf" skins to
practice with. That's got to be preferable to making errors on the
Tandy also sells stuff they call "book leather", most of which looks (to
my inexperienced eye) like artificially grained pig splits.
I would like to hear thoughts of others on the less expensive leathers
such as Tandy's.
