In Stitches

Wow and Love.  That pretty much sums up my thoughts on these stunning embroidered book covers by Penguin.  I can't believe I have only just come across them, especially as I am a huge fan of the clothbound series which Penguin brought out to celebrate their 75th birthday. 
Penguin Clothbound Classic Series

Known as the Threads (very cool), they have been designed by Jillian Tamaki for Penguin.  A visual delight.  

The Threads are available to buy from Amazon
My creative juices are now in full flow.  I have been thinking about taking up needlepoint this winter to wile away the long, cold evenings and now I have a project- embroidering a cover for our wedding album... or have I gone the wrong side of naff?
