I was so happy when I came across this series of books released by Penguin (who else, Penguin rocks!) Award winning art director Paul Buckley has commissioned different artist to do covers in thread and the first of the series is Jillian Tamaki. Wow! WOW! I love these, whoever said that books were a dying breed should look at these and dare say that again. Books are definitely not obsolete, especially not if we make them something special for people to experience and in this field of expertise Penguin is the master. Can’t wait to see the series continue!

See more on the project at Penguin.

I would have never thought to have seen embroidery used as book covers. These are really nice!
