It's no secret that print journalism is on its way out, but that doesn't mean it will be forgotten, and Lauren DiCioccio is someone who will make sure of that. In her series 'Sewn News,' DiCioccio has taken iconic newspaper covers, faded the printed sections, and re-done the cover photos with detailed embroidery.

DiCioccio's embroidered newspapers invoke a sense of nostalgia for the printed age, while immortalizing moments in an innovative new way. "[I aim] to remind the viewer of these simple but intimate pieces of everyday life," says DiCioccio of her creations. With her colorful thread popping out of each page, reminding us of historical basketball games, presidential speeches, and even Lady Gaga concerts, DiCioccio does just that.

By transforming newspapers from a simple means of transmitting information to a visually arresting, nostalgia-inducing art form, DiCioccio ensures that as the media industry moves more firmly into the digital age, they will never forget their roots.
