artwork by jillian tamaki

waddaya think?
here's a glimpse at the Penguin Books new Classic Deluxe series called * Penguin Threads * : re-issues of some of our favourite books! the covers are embroidered art designs by artist jillian tamaki ( love the details, modern colouring, and that the covers will be embossed! nicey!) . 

always love seeing great creative art on book covers.

i'm excited penguin's dedicating a whole series to these fun new covers! hope they'll be lots more!

what book cover would you love to illustrate/design?

{ first seen on the fabulous sublime stitching via the atlantic. }
