I found, quite possibly, the most interesting artistic project ever. Illustrator and Comic Artist, Jillian Tamaki, was commissioned by Penguin books to design book jackets: Penguin Threads. The design: done in embroidery! How fascinating!
Of course, she would have to choose from my favourites of classic literature. 'The Secret Garden' is often a book I turn to in the spring, and this cover jacket is so inspiring. The attention to detail on her 'Black Beauty' cover is exquisite. And Emma is made adorable - just as endearing as the story.
Tamaki wrote that the project was rather painstaking, but incredibly worthwhile. I agree! It definitely makes my fingers itch to pick up a needle and thread in an unconventional way.
