Wanted: Beautiful Hand-Embroidered Vintage Books

It’s no secret that we at Flavorpill are pretty big fans of the book as art object, so no one’s surprised that we fell for these beautiful and skillfully augmented book covers. Artist and photographer Jessica Reed, whose work we first spotted over at Design Sponge, embellishes the covers of old paperbacks with hand-stitched embroidery, making these crumbling books into keepsakes you can also read. Click through to check out some of her work, and if you’re as enamored with this charming little paperbacks as we are, head over to her Etsy shop to buy one for your very own.
