Embroidered books for penguin

I know I have shared a lot of stuff that somehow contained embroidery lately, but then this project is far too good to not share it: Penguin is going to published literary classics this autumn – whose surface is embroidered. Well, actually only the prototype was embroidered, but the final books will have a tactile writing as well, making it look like as if.

The wonderful project was carried out by Jillian Tamaki (read more here) who had done embroidery, sewing and quilting projects already before working with penguin. I can’t wait to see those beautiful books waiting for me in my favourite bookshop!
