Types of Leather.Leather is the hide of an animal that has been dried, tanned, processed and dyed. There are numerous types of leather used for making photo albums. The finest leather is full-grain. It is usually tanned and left in a more natural state than other types of leather. Top-grain, or split-grain, has an artificial grain pressed into one side. The other side is fuzzy. Suede comes from the inside piece of split-grain and is fuzzy on both sides. Shiny patent leather is coated with plastic. Napa leather is extremely soft. Naturally, the softest, most supple leathers cost more.
There are different kinds of adhesives specifically used for mounting photos, such as photo squares or photo splits. Scrapbookers love using these because they can easily remove and reattach photographs (and other memorabilia or embellishments) without defacing the rest of the page. There are also glue sticks for attaching other elements to your pages, although I don't recommend using these in areas of high humidity.
