Somebody over at Penguin Publishing really knows how to pluck our heartstrings. We've been fans of their gorgeous clothbound classics for a while now, and just last week we ran across these sneak preview photos of new cover designs due out in the Fall.
Illustrator Jillian Tamaki is the genius behind these 3 embroidered masterpieces, and when we say "embroidered", we mean, yes, she embroidered them. The craftsmanship is mind-boggling, and the overall look is fantastically whimsical. The books are due out from Penguin in October of this year, and according to Tamaki, the covers will be printed and embossed.
Head on over to Jillian's blog for more information and to see her "making of" photos.
