Jillian Tamaki's Covetable Embroidered Covers

Publishing giant Penguin’s knack of turning dusty old classics into collector’s items is unparalleled, with each new resurrection project — be it its hardbound, tattoo-inspired, or fashion editions — turning us into giddy little kids again. For its latest revival, Penguin commissioned illustrator and cartoonist Jillian Tamaki to embroider the covers of The Secret Garden, Emma, and Black Beauty, with gorgeous results.

These editions aren’t due ’til fall, but, you can ogle the artwork and behind-the-scenes photos at Tamaki’s blog in the meantime!

About Jenn
