2011 Embroidered Calendar

February 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Iwona Przybyla created this DIY embroidery calendar concept that would come packaged with the materials needed to stitch the typography for each month. I think regardless of your skill level with needle and thread you would feel pretty accomplished finishing the year. Really beautiful. (via typography served)

Traumgedanken: A physical hyperlink book by Maria Fischer

January 5, 2011

GGrr kmvmdgfffff uy. Hold on, trying to pick my jaw up off the keyboard. Traumgedanken (Thoughts on Dreams) by German artist Maria Fischer is a 76-page collection of literary, philosophical, psychological and scientific texts on dream theories interlinked with thread.

To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming. Analogue to a dream, where pieces of reality are assembled to build a story, it brings different text excerpts together. They are connected by threads which tie in with certain key words. The threads visualise the confusion and fragileness of dreams.

Stitched Illustrations by Peter Crawley

December 22, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Embroidery month continues here at Colossal. After a road trip across the U.S., Buckinghamshire-based artist Peter Crawley was inspired to stitch his travels onto a map. Apparently Crawley took to the medium rather quickly and he’s been unable to put down the thread ever since. His portfolio is chalk full of architectural renderings, geometric forms, typography and other illustrations all painstakingly sewn into pierced watercolor paper using cotton thread.

When I started working on Colossal in earnest last August I did’t anticipate the rash of embroidery that would eventually makes its way here. This work by Daniel Kornrumpf is astounding.

Embroidered CMYK Typography by Evelin Kasikov

December 6, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Based on the huge response to the embroidery work of Lauren DiCioccio last week I’m sure many of you will enjoy this CMYK typography by London-based Evelin Kasikov. Evelyn uses thread to mimic moiré patterns used by printers, where multiple color grids are overlapped to create shapes of blended color.
