Amazing!!! A medieval book is mended with silk thread in amazing shape from the 14th century: click through to the article for more pics and info from Uppsala University Library
Uppsala, University Library, Shelfmark unknown (14th century) Embroidery used to repair parchment in medieval books!
14th century repair to a book with parchment pages . Older parchment was literally made from animal skins (!) which sometimes was made too thin, so repairs had to be made (Note: do this with some diviant art twist, on denim, linen - do calligraphy/lettering onto the linen) >From: Uppsala, University Library, Shelfmark unknown (14th century)
Holes in the parchment of a medieval manuscript are mended with colorful silk thread. The manuscript was purchased by the Vadstena Convent in 1417 and is currently at the Uppsala University Library in Sweden.
Medieval manuscript patched with pink silk thread embroidery, c.1417. Uppsala, Sweden. The faults are repaired, or at least hidden by embroidery. This was done by the nuns who made the acquisition of the book in 1417. The colors of the silk embroidery has survived the centuries.
A medieval book mended with silk thread The book presented here was one such project just because of the special way it had been mended with silk thread and which was in great need of conservation. The manuscript dates from the 14th century and it belonged to the monastic library at Vadstena Convent after its purchase in Konstanz in 1417.
A round hole mended with silk threads. In a 14th century book. From an article in the Uppsala University Library's website. Wow - the mend is really old even though at first glance it looks like some modern arty 'altered book' thing!
No, it's not modern art, it's a medieval book mended with silk thread by the nuns at Vadstena! Found via http://www.needlenthread.com/2013/06/silk-threads-buttonhole-stitch-and-medieval-manuscripts.html

Stitched leaves by artist Hillary Fayle who is currently working on a MFA in Craft/Material studies at the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia.

Jose Ignacio Romussi Murphy. Embroidery on photography. I love this dance series. EMBROIDERY ON PHOTOGRAPHY. MIXED MEDIA. OLD SCHOOL IDEAS USED IN NEW WAYS. DOES NOT NECESSARILY HAVE TO TIE INTO M_UP BUT CAN BE SOMETHING THAT CURRENTLY IS INSPIRING YOU.
Art: Dance Exam by J 0 2 e, via Flickr embroidery on vintage black and white photo. Ok, random thought: whenever I get sick with a fever, it feels like I can see sounds, and they look like those lines!! It's true!!

4. Unusual portraiture Art: Dance Exam by J 0 2 e, via Flickr embroidery on vintage black and white photo
(via Studio Arts & Crafts / Jose Romussi). Looks like embroidery on an old photo. Love that idea.
Artist Jose Romussi breathes new life into old photos by embroidering colorful thread onto skirts and dresses. While the Chile-based mixed media artist has a website full of peculiar and strange collages, it's this fanciful series that has captured my attention. By taking vintage photos of women dancing and embroidering rainbow colored lines on top of them, he not only makes each photo decidedly more modern, he makes us appreciate each dancer's graceful movement.

Ambiguous Documents- As an initial starting point, this idea is interesting from stitching over the words to create new sentences. I can use this as inspiration in looking at old styles of letters or writing seeing how the language has changed through the time as well as looking at formal and informal. #stitch #book
Ambiguous Documents - Idea: page from a book and earphone wires on top of the pages to present how we chose music over reading.
