Books as Art

I just love these beautifully illustrated books by Penguin Threads releasing this Fall (the next endeavor from the creative folks that brought us the brilliant Penguin Classics series that line the shelves of Anthropologie). Artist Jillian Tamaki illustrated each cover before stitching the final design. The final covers are embossed to imitate the feel of the stitching. Simply stunning!
