Confluence of Crafts and Reading!

Penguin classics commissioned artist Jillian Tamaki to make three gorgeous embroidered covers for their Fall 2011 collection.  These are breathtaking!  I think my favorite one is the cover for The Secret Garden but they are all composed so intricately and beautifully.

All of the backs are also embroidered and each feature a little quote from the book.

I don't own any of these great titles so I may have to go out and purchase these beauties come fall!  To see Ms. Tamaki's process of creating the covers, check out her blog here.
