There is a border style for every person and project and, as already mentioned, the corners are addressed. I always look to this book first when I need a border or edging. Yes, there are no names for the patterns, only numbers, but I cannot imagine trying to come up with 150 meaningful names, can you? No, there is not a picture index and that could have been helpful. But I enjoy perusing the pages to find something that works for me and mentally or literally bookmarking others to try so it hasn't been a problem.
I didn't read the dimensions for the size of this and was a bit surprised that it is half the height of a regular pattern book. But they were smart and it makes perfect sense to do it this way. The border of each pattern runs across the top and side of the page so you could set your project right on the page to pick the perfect border.
There is 150 different border patterns and I don't see that any really repeat like some other pattern books do. Although the author must be partial to fall colors there is enough variations to get inspiration from.
If they come out with a wire version with the spiral at the top I might buy that one as well.
One of my favorite features is that the author gives you the number your base row needs to be divisible by for the pattern to work. I'm not actually working with a hard corner but a rounded one and just ignored the corner instructions but it's nice to know they'll be there when I need them.
The book itself is an odd size (8.5" by 6") but it is easy to prop open or put in a book stand close by because it's made of such heavy stock. I actually photocopied the one I was working with for ease of transport and use.
I don't think I'll need to look elsewhere for edgings for a very long time.
