Gallery: Inge Jacobson’s Hand-Stitched ‘Vogue’ Covers


Artist Inge Jacobsen transforms fashion magazines into intricate works of art. By meticulously hand-stitching Vogue covers, she takes something mass-produced and makes it permanent, tying fleeting trends to a centuries-old craft. The new form invites us to spend longer contemplating images we usually breeze through without a second thought. See Jacobsen’s Vogue covers after the jump, and visit her blog for more magazine stitching, including a NSFW series of pornographic images sewn onto ads and fashion spreads.
