Newspapers as embroidered art

Media_httpwwwlaurendi_fhbev

Artist Lauren DiCioccio takes an old issue of The New York Times, wraps it in muslin and then hand-embroiders on the front of the fabric. Viola! It’s not a newspaper, it’s ART!

I have very vague recollections of doing something like this back in junior high school art class — except, of course, not as sophisticated.
