Pflanzen und Tiere Europas

Pflanzen 3

I came across this book at a free second-hand book give away at uni. I was drawn to it because of its beautiful botanical drawings. I’m planning on using some of the images in collages, and I wanted to create something involving the cover without changing it too much. I used tracing paper in order to create an embroidered replica and I am really pleased with the result; the transparency reveals all the twisted threads, creating the illusion that the cover is alive and growing.
