Penguin Threads // Jillian Tamaki
Wednesday, 30 March 2011
The talent and patience of some people astounds me. I am someone who is too impatient to even sketch proper leaves on a drawing of a tree, so anything that looks like it's taken an age and is all the more amazing for it makes me gush. Embroidered by the talented hands of Jillian Tamaki, this new series of embroidered book covers for the Penguin Threads series are completely gush-worthy.
The final covers have french flaps and were embossed to retain the detail and feel of the embroidery. Can't wait to see them in the flesh! (I love the back of black beauty especially so)
