Black Beauty Embroidered Book Cover

I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw these embroidered books by Jillian Tamaki for Penguin Books on Black Eiffel.  Naturally ‘Black Beauty’ was my favorite.  Aren’t they exquisite?  The craft of the whole process has me swooning and the way she’s able to capture such power and movement has me doing twirls.

Here’s Miss Tamaki hard at work. I wish I could bring her a cup of tea and hover over her shoulder to watch. I would bring her Harney & Sons “Paris” because it’s my favorite.

I know this one doesn’t have anything to do with horses but I love ‘Emma’. Don’t you? Anyway, Janue Austen is full of horses and carriages not to mention incredible clothes.

I love it when horses and art intersect.  It just makes my day.  I hope it makes yours too.

p.s. I’ve missed you.
