Ever fallen in love with a book cover?

Isn't this cover art for Jane Austen's Emma gorgeous? It caught my eye while taking a stroll through Anthropologie and I knew I had to add it to my bookshelf.

This lovely cover art is part of a series called Penguin Threads. It took Julian Tamaki two months to hand embroider these three patterns. The covers were then sculptural-embossed and have the texture of embroidery.
