Penguin Thread Deluxe Classics

Red Thread Collective member Maha brought this incredible work to my attention last week and had to pass it on. Illustrator and cartoonist Jillian Tamaki has been secretly working on an exclusive commission for Penguin Books. For two solid months Jillian has designed and hand embroidered the covers for classics such as Black Beauty, Emma and Secret Garden. To be released in October this year, whilst we will not be able to purchase the hand stitched version, the books will be printed with a sculptural embossing technique to emphasize the stitches.

To see more images of the covers and the artist at work visit her blog post here!
