Knitted Journal by Dennis Yuen

Extraordinary Brooklyn bookbinder Dennis Yuen (Cai Lun) has done it again. Just when I think I've seen the most beautiful, interesting, and pleasing bookbinding ever, he comes up with something new!

According to his great blog, he has just completed a new journal with a brilliant knitted cover! It's one of his sculptural books, and accordingly it's titled Knitted. You can see more images of it here.

I'm not sure if he's selling this one, but it sure is something to behold. Others of his books are available at Greenjeans (email for details).

And I thought knitting was just for sweaters and ketchup bottle cozies...
