Embroidered Newspapers by Lauren DiCioccio
Spotted on Beautiful Decay, we were instantly enthralled by the unique embroidery work of Lauren DiCioccio. We have a serious love for skilled embroidery, as exemplified by our embroidered sheets, and DiCioccio's work was no exception.
From Beautiful Decay's article:
Lauren DiCioccio uses a simple needle and thread on cotton muslin to mummify and honor an endangered artifact– the printed newspaper. In each piece, as The New York Times’ text fades, its correlating cover portraits puncture the surface with pockets of strung together color, reminding us of a certain tactile human unraveling as we adaptively wave goodbye to the Industrial Age.
