C.S. Osborne "tools for leather work" including steel punches for ovals,
elliptical shapes, arches, and equidistant slots (for lacing) are
Henry Westphal 105 W. 30th St, NY, NY 10001 (212) 563-5990

for small jobs or one-off's, you'll build muscle if you plan on
editioning. If you have a stamper, stick with the die-cut for well
aligned album pages. I'm sure you can also order pre-cut pages to
