Trending Now

In 1971, Joni Mitchell hand-produced 100 copies of a book called Morning Glory On The Vine as a holiday gift for friends. The book contained handwritten lyrics and poems, accompanied by more than thirty full-colour illustrations and paintings.

As part of Mitchell’s 75th birthday celebrations, Canongate will publish a facsimile edition this autumn. It will contain the book’s complete original content, plus a new introduction written by Joni and a number of her additional paintings, made at the time of the book’s creation, that were not included in the 1971 edition.
