I would say these books are not on the edge but over the top! The content demonstrates the point where knitting as craft becomes knitting as art. I cannot believe how many beautiful and innovative knitting methods the author demonstrates. I originally purchased the “Beyond the Edge” book because I was getting bored with plain 1x1 ribbed bands and I’m always looking for interesting new collars. I was not disappointed and neither will you be! It is impossible to adequately describe the wealth of goodies contained in these three volumes. I’ve attached some photos just to give some idea. You have to get your hands on them and look for yourself.
The volumes are much like the Vogue “Stitchionary” series: same size, layout and feel. I happen to like the way Vogue did those books so I am pleased with the Epstein books.
