The latest addition to the Archie McPhee Library is an awesome series of books called Star Wars Epic Yarns by twin brothers Jack and Holman Wang of Cozy Classics. As the delightfully punny title implies, the brothers used their geektastic needle felting skills to recreate iconic scenes the original Star Wars trilogy, starting with Star Wars Epic Yarns: A New Hope, followed by Star Wars Epic Yarns: The Empire Strikes Back, and finishing with Star Wars Epic Yarns: Return of the Jedi.
Jedi apprentices and little princesses will delight in this (heart)felt retelling of the Star Wars saga. And so will Star Wars fans of any age! The series launches with the original trilogy, and every word counts in these small but perfectly formed yarns. That’s because each volume features 12 iconic scenes, handcrafted in felt and pithily summarized in just a single word. The attention to detail is eye-opening; the proportions are just-right for small hands; the fun is guaranteed.
When they aren’t working on needle felting projects Jack Wang works as an Associate Professor in the Department of Writing at Ithaca College and Holman Wang, a former teacher, is an artist and author. Visit the Cozy Classics website to check out more of the brothers’ delightful needle felted projects.
