Whips & Scorpions
Whips and Whipmaking
Whipmaking is the highest refinement of the art of leather braiding. This revised edition introduces another major category of whips--those 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.

How to Make Whips
Ron Edwards was born in Australia in 1930 and brought up in the country where small farmers still plowed with horses and harvested their half acres with sickles and scythes, and larger properties relied on the annual visit of the steam-driven threshing machines. By the 1940s all this had vanished, and Edwards had realized that the country s traditional crafts also were disappearing. He began making drawings and notes of them and published these materials in his native country. How to Make Whips is the American edition of his ninth book. The first section gives instructions for a basic eight-strand whip; the second deals with the making of fine kangaroo hide whips. Other chapters explain the making of bullwhips, snake whips, and whips made from precut lace. Also included are instructions on plaiting names in whips and using plaiting designs for whip handles.
Documentarian Rex (David Krumholtz) follows ruthless reality television producer Katy Courbet (Eva Mendes), a woman who will stop at nothing to revive the American Broadcasting Network's failing ratings -- and forward her own career. To the dismay of the government, Courbet approves a reality show that will become network television's first foray into snuff. In the first episode, contestants engage in a deadly game of Russian roulette for the chance at a multi-million-dollar cash prize.

In this book, David Morgan, the expert who made the whips for the Indiana Jones movies, shows how to braid simple projects quickly. With close attention to detail and a little practice using the methods described here, novices can produce attractive and enduring items from precut lace or a skin or side of leather. Braiding Fine Leather was written to help the beginning braider acquire basic skills. After completing some simple projects that can be done well at an early stage, the braider will develop the confidence to attempt more involved types of braided work, from handsome clothing accessories to practical livestock-handling gear. The book begins with an overview of materials, tools, and fundamental braiding methods. Then seven projects are presented, each adding something new to the skills already practiced. Photographs taken in sequence are used to illustrate the instructions, giving the new braider a close-up look at each step in the braiding process. The techniques used in this book come from those developed in Australian whipmaking shops, which are well-recognized for the high quality of their work. The craft had been carried to Australia by thongmakers from England, who were familiar with the thongs used on finely braided carriage whips. Kangaroo leather, one of the finest leathers available for braiding, provided the material for high-quality work, and a large and discriminating market in Australia led to highly refined techniques. Providing complete, straightforward instructions and close-up photographs showing each step in the process, David Morgan has created an excellent book for those who want to learn to braid leather.
