For anyone who appreciates fine lace knitting, this is a terrific book to have around. It is an excellent resource from a man who has been called the "father if modern lace knitting." Now granted there were/are not many male lace designers but Niebling earns the title. If you are looking for a challenge, pick this book up!
Eva Mariea Leszner did a very nice job of translating some of the designs of Herbert Niebling from German to English. The designs are a nice collection of work with projects in several sizes and several levels of expertise. Her explanation of working the patterns is better than average. The one thing I wish she had done differently was to have used the same symbols he used in his German patterns. In any case, this is a fine book, and for those who collect Niebling patterns a nice addition to their collection.
