I was very much taken by this news item on the BBC website:
To celebrate its 800th anniversary, the artist Cornelia Parker has arranged for the wikipedia page for Magna Carta to be immortalised in embroidery.
This project is amazing! I love how the artist got people to sew the words that were important to them. I love that prisoners helped to sew the text, rather than sewing mailbags! I love that it’s got the occasional tea-stain on it. It makes me think of the Bayeux Tapestry.
I must try to get up to see it at the British Library.
And I hope the BBC don’t mind that I’ve filched one of their photos.
