penguin has pretty much been knocking it out of the park with their book redesigns in recent years, and their latest series, penguin threads, is no exception. i love books and i love embroidery, so these were more or less made for me. the lady behind the design is jillian tamaki, an illustrator and cartoonist who hand-embroidered each cover, and the final book was then sculpt embossed to give it a real texture. and that's not all - when you open the covers, you can even see the backs of the embroideries! swoon. buy the series at penguin and learn more about jillian here.
