I’m blown away by these hand-embroidered book covers that Rachell Sumpter created for Penguin under the art direction of Paul Buckley. Get a closer look  at the details on Flickr.

    [...] The series now continues with cover art by Rachell Sumpter – beautiful gift-worthy classics. The covers are sketched out in a traditional illustrative manner and then hand-stitched using a needle and thread. The final covers are sculpt embossed for a tactile, textured and beautiful book design.
