Written by Linda Sparks the author of "The Basics of Corset Building" these PDF books were chapters in her second book "The Art of Corset Building" which at close to 500 pages was not cost effective to publish or to ship! To make the information more accessible she's working on creating each chapter as a stand alone PDF book, allowing you to purchase only the chapters you want or need and not having to wait for delivery or pay for shipping.
It will take time to get all the chapters up here as there are over 20 of them!
It took several years and hundreds of hours and dollars to create the samples and write about the processes used. Please be respectful and not share these files freely.

PLEASE NOTE: for some reason some people (about 1%) get an error message saying the "File Cannot be Found". Tech support has looked into this and can see no reason why anyone would get this message - IF YOU get this message please let us and know and we will e-mail you the PDF. If you get an error that is a series of numbers then "clear your cache" or "Close your browser and reopen", either of these steps should resolve the issue.
