Link to Love: Stitched Magazine Covers

Have you heard of the artist Inge Jacobsen?  She's cross-stitching and embroidering magazine covers and other cool photographs.

Today's link to love is her website.

Wondering why someone would go to the trouble to recreate these photos with thread? Jacobsen says "With the over saturation of images in our world today, this is a way for me to 'hijack' this overwhelming consumption from the mass produced and alter it to create something unique."

Happy reading!
