Penguin Books has recently comissioned Jill Tamaki to design embroidered book covers for 3 of their Penguin Classics. Aren’t these Penguin Threads simply beautiful? The covers are wrap-around so to see the back covers, as well as a few pics “behind the scenes”, visit Jill’s blog . The special edition books are being released in October 2011. As the author of Becoming You, Kathryn is a mom of 2, wife of 9 (years that is!), Capetonian, book lover, chocoholic, francophile, magazine addict, prettiness magpie, amateur photographer, jewellery junkie, sometimes gardener, wannabe world traveller (on hold for now), terrible saver, reluctant chef, creative crafter, art film watcher, impatient driver, children’s book collector, list maker, saved by grace… She blogs to connect with the world and to remind herself of who she is aside from someone’s mom.
