Art of the Boot
It's the 150 stunning color photographs that make this book so special. As a follow-up to the Cowboy Boot Book, it celebrates how the art of the boot has risen to mind blowing proportions. The art is what this book is all about: new perfection in hand-carved and painted leather tops, colorful hand-beaded boots, varying styles of machine embroidery, rhinestone-studded boots, long mule ears with silver conchos, ornate stitching and inlays; the ancient hand-stitching art of pitiado has been revived. We are seeing gold, diamonds, silver, prehistoric mammoth tusk, ancient coins, and precious stones set into boot leather to create wearable cowboy-boot jewelry.
