book·ish : Penguin Threads Deluxe Classics.

Illustrator Jillian Tamaki was given the amazing opportunity to create covers of three different books for Penguin. Aren't the detail and color amazing?

Hand embroidered versions will not be available for purchase, but Jillian says on her blog that the covers will be printed with a sculptural embossing technique to emphasize the stitches. I'm thinking I'll definitely pick one up when they come out this fall!

1. (of a person or way of life) Devoted to reading and studying rather than worldly interests.
2. (of language or writing) Literary in style or allusion.
3. (of art and all manner of lovely things) devoted to the written word as a form of art and as a way of seeing the world.
4. (of SheWritesandRights.blogspot.com) anything of the aforementioned characteristics as they are found on the interwebs and reposted by Bethany, because bookish and writerly things always give reason for amusement.
