Jillian Tamaki

I think I have fallen in love with this embroidery by Jillian Tamaki. This patchwork quilt is made up of monsters among other things all hand embroidered, it must have taken a very long time indeed! Over summer I began to try my hand at embroidery and I am really getting into it, I find it difficult to make it neat on the on the back of it but I like the image the threads create on both sides. It takes a long time to create an image but I really like the aesthetic it creates to the illustration, they come alive!

These hand embroidered covers took 2 months to complete and are really beautiful, making very interesting and alternative book covers to the normal covers we see.
