Penguin threads: Embroidered book covers

secret_garden Have you seen the covers of the new Penguin threads deluxe editions that are going to be released in fall? I am so drooling over the pictures at Jillian Tamaki’s blog. She is the artist who designs the new covers for “Emma”, “The Secret Garden” and “Black Beauty”. Aren’t they just gorgeous?

The covers of the books sold will obviously not be hand-embroidered (a bit too expensive for most) but will be sort of embossed and a tactile experience nevertheless.

The Atlantic.com also has a short article about this the project.

  1. I’d seen these before but weren’t aware they were actually going to be used for covers. I might get a copy of Black Beauty as I no longer have my childhood copy.
