Penguin Threads

Thursday, February 16, 2012


Penguin Books has done it again. This time, with a new collection called Penguin Threads. They are offering 3 classics in covers designed by artist, Jillian Tamaki. She was given the creative task of hand embroidering all 3 covers in just 2 months. The books are sold with sculptural-embossed, full wrap around covers.


I think these are just exquisite. I have studied these images, enlarged them, and studied them some more. I love Jillian's color combinations, the thick details, the tiny knots that comprise Mary's fuschia skirt...and just look at the loose flowing mane of Black Beauty and the tiny little knots and stitches that create his strong body. 

How sweet are Emma's multi-colored curls and the twists of her braids..the teeny little pink freckles.

The original classics already live on my bookshelves, but I can not wait to add these to my collection!

{To purchase, please check out your own local bookstore!}
