Check out these beautifully hand-stitched Vogue magazine covers by Inge Jacobsen. These pieces are a little smaller than the actual cover size. I think it's an amusing exercise however. Imagine how interesting it would be to have a fashion editorial so tangible using fabric immersed in the pages, or even just a fashion catalog done that way.
Here are some other pieces she's done as well that reflect somewhat the tangible editorials i was talking about above.
