Joseph Ford, a photographer, and Nina Dodd, a knitter who specializes in “camouflage,” have put in much more hours than is practical to make custom sweaters for people, animals, and even bananas that blend in with everything from bus seats to bushes, carpets to coastlines.

According to Ford’s statement to The Independent, “I love the challenge of finding graphic places, choosing models that would fit well within them, and then working with Nina’s knitting skills to blend them as seamlessly as possible.” I spent several days or weeks researching and planning each of these images, and Nina knit for weeks or even months for each.

You may now enjoy this comic series in a brand-new book from Hoxton Mini Press, a well-liked independent publisher. There is an introduction by renowned author and gallerist Laura Noble, photographs showing 25 knitted objects, behind-the-scenes photography, and stories. Dare we say, one to add to the Christmas gift wish list?
