Embroidered book covers

The embroiderer Karin Holmberg has made wonderful book covers to the Swedish classic series of Karl-Oskar and Kristina and their emmigration to America, "Utvandrarna", "Invandrarna", "Nybyggarna" and "Sista brevet till Sverige". You can read more about how one of these beautiful embroideries has been made on her blog (in Swedish with a summary in English). Kungliga Biblioteket (The National Library) also wrote a blogpost on the subject today.

 If that isn't enough, here is Karin Holmberg sharing her thoughts on the project in a short video.
