Sew Lovely

What better use of a snow day is there than finding surprising displays of artwork that highlight books and reading?  This fall books known as Penguin Threads Deluxe Classics will be released.  Visit the web site of Jillian Tamaki artist extraordinaire to view all three completed book covers for classic titles, The Secret Garden, Emma and Black Beauty.  Having been a fanatic embroiderer in my younger days I can only imagine the hours to not only design but to actually complete the sewing on each piece of art.
When these books are available to the public the covers will be rendered using a sculptural-embossing technique that will make them collectibles of the best kind.
