The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Stitchery by Virginia Tiffany

I adore the stitching on the cover of this vintage children’s book, which hails from the collection of Pixiegenné. I wish modern book publishers would integrate handicrafts a bit more, as the effect is so lovely and memorable. Link.

    I remember having that book when I was a little girl! I loved it and remember the stitching very well. The saturation of images always kinda reminded me of the It’s a Small World ride at Disneyland. I especially like how she illustrated “The Wind”.
