You may have seen these around the web already, but I had to re-post them. How cool is this- embroidered book covers!??
"As a part of its Fall 2011 collection, Penguin plans to release these delightful covers as part of its Penguin Threads series. Inspired by the handmade craft craze that has proliferated on sites like Etsy, the publishing house commissioned artist Jillian Tamaki to design hand-sewn covers of three classics: Jane Austen'sEmma, Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden, and Anna Sewell's Black Beauty."

The Secret Garden has been one of my favorite books since I was a kid, I think these are all beautiful. Definitely makes you want to take a second look at these classics!
