Threads of Awesome

I ran across this unspeakably awesome project and I cannot stop admiring it. Illustrator and cartoonist Jillian Tamaki has created a set of stunning Penguin Threads Deluxe Classics book covers. And they are . . . well, click on over and see for yourself. She's got images up of her embroidered covers for The Secret Garden, Emma, and Black Beauty. Genius.

Thanks to Amy at Simple Little Bookworm for the heads up!

  4. Thanks for the link! Maybe she'll be commissioned to do a Jane Eyre cover *fingers crossed*

    I looked around her sight a bit more, and she has the most lovely portrait of Christina Rossetti. Here's the link: http://blog.jilliantamaki.com/2011/02/portrait-of-christina-rossetti-sketch/
