Jillian Tamaki - embroidered book covers

These are so gorgeous - taken from Jillian's website:-
Penguin THREADS Classics
Client: Penguin USA
These three book covers were embroidered by hand over the course of 2 months. Three books were a lot to pull off, but I am such a sucker for classic literature and book illustration... how could I say no? The covers will be sculptural-embossed and are full wraparound images with french flaps (click the small picture to enlarge). They will be available for sale in October, 2011.
