amazing sculptures via makoto tojiki, who made them with strands of light. tojiki said of his sculptures:

Using contours of light, I try to express this ‘something.

embroidered * book covers

if you are a book lover like me, you’ll definitely appreciate the penguin threads project. scheduled for release in october 2011, penguin will be re-releasing the classics with embroidered covers. designed by jillian tamaki, the covers are so amazing, it makes me want to replace all my old dusty classics with these works of art. check out her site for more.
