Nicky Epstein is very imaginative and she puts that imagination to anyone's reach with this book on borders. 350 borders, in 6 sections: ribs (or stitches that could be substituted for ribs on a sweater or anyplace you might want to use ribs), ruffles (and as much variation as you might want on the topic), lace (lacy stitches with an emphasis on yo/dec types of motifs), fringes (almost all of the borders shown are actually knitted, with the exception of tassels), flora (with an emphasis on motifs that represent nature), and point and picots (some bobbles and geometrics).
I think the weakest section is the one on lace, but maybe that's just the illusion given by the relative fount of newly published book on the topic of lace and the astonishing number of border options in those publications. The other sections are wonderful just because of the number of different ideas. It should give anyone ideas to customize a project or even start one from scratch to suit the border.
Another compliment to give the book is that there are patterns included as inspiration and they help to see how the border elements might be used to enhance a project. There are 3 sweaters, one cardi, two scarves and one ruffled bag. They are fun pieces, but of course, not the focus of the book.
The book's editing is fine, but it would have been interesting to use charts for some of the more complex stitches.
