I am crazy for the hand embroidered book covers created by artist/illustrator Jillian Tamaki. The Secret Garden never looked so pretty!
There is a trio of stitched book covers being released by Penguin (and hooray to Penguin for creating this book renaissance of theirs...I'm smitten!) in the fall of this year. The jackets took Tamaki two months to create, and every stitch is just as dreamy as the books they are covering. I'm sure Mary Lennox would approve.
