Penguin Threads

Penguin Books has re-published some classic novels with cover illustrations in stitchery under the imprint Penguin Threads.
Artist Jillian Tamaki embroidered the illustrations.

A nice gift for a girl ready to read the classics---or anyone who likes the book.

And see Tomaki's big embroidery project, her Monster Quilt.
Here's what she says:

I’ve taken up embroidery in a very enthusiastic yet clumsy way. It was pleasant to work in an unfamiliar medium with some real inherent limitations. And, oddly enough, it was kind of nice to produce something that must be seen in person to be fully appreciated

The book covers are interesting. And the "monster quilt" is fabulous!
