The Needleworks of Francesco Vezzoli

Ages ago I found this book and I flipped through it in a hurry as I was being yanked out of the store by friends to go to dinner. Anyway, I forgot his name and couldn't find the book, so after much searching the internet I found him again and now I'm sharing it with you.

As well as making films, Francesco did this amazing installation of needlepoint covered seats in 2004 (see above). You can read more about him here and see more of the needlepoints in his book The Needleworks of Francesco Vezzoli.
