Penguin Threads editions

People who see books as art objects, Rejoice!, or perhaps bemoan the state of your pocketbook. Penguin, as part of their Deluxe Classics series, has commissioned a series of books to have covers based on hand sewn designs by Jillian Tamaki. These covers are embossed to resemble the embroidered originals. The three books in the Penguin Threads subseries, thus far, are Jane Austen's Emma, Anna Sewell's Black Beauty, and Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden. These books are scheduled to go on sale in October of this year. For larger views of the covers, view Jillian Tamaki's website.
