Singer Joni Mitchell is releasing a collection of her early lyrics and drawings, created in 1971, originally in an edition of only 100 copies given as gifts to friends. The re-issue will make the more than 30 original artworks, plus poetry and lyrics, available to the public for the first time. (Above – Mitchell in 2018, Getty Images)
“The lively, full-colour watercolour paintings depict a superb array of landscapes, still-lifes, portraits of friends, self portraits, innovative abstractions and more,” the publisher of the book Houghton Mifflin Harcourt said.
Morning Glory on the Vine: Early Songs and Drawings by Joni Mitchell, will be available the fall of 2019. See a huge selection of drawings by decade on Joni Mitchell’s website, here.
