I will say I am a sucker for great design, especially when it comes to books, hence why I have three copies of Jane Eyre, including a hardcover by Penguin. Penguin Classics Deluxe have been employing current artists and illustrators to give their classic books a new design, even creating a couture line. Like the Jane Eyre with illustration by Ruben Toledo and Chris Ware’s illustration for Candide and Tom Gauld’s illustration for The Three Musketeers.
To add to these cool covers is a new line are illustrations done in embroidery by Jillian Tamaki. Her blog gives detail and overall shots of her work which is luscious.
