artist jillian tamaki was commissioned by penguin classics to illustrate and design three book titles: black beauty, the secret garden, and emma (not shown here). little women (as well as the wind in the willows and the wizard of oz) was designed by artist rachell sumpter. their work is just stunning and would make an amazing addition to your child’s book collection. you may even want to pick up a copy for yourself! the illustrations were hand embroidered and then printed with an embossed technique that highlights each thread. read more about penguin threads here.
