Morning Glory on the Vine
Originally handcrafted in 1971 as a gift for friends, this edition of Joni Mitchell’s best-loved poems, illustrations, watercolours and hand-lettered song lyrics is now publicly available for the first time.
In 1971, as her album Blue topped music charts around the world, Joni Mitchell created a dazzling and unforgettable holiday gift for her closest friends. Morning Glory on the Vine was an exquisite selection of Joni’s handwritten lyrics and poems, accompanied by more than thirty full-colour illustrations, paintings and watercolours. The book was hand-produced in Los Angeles and limited to one hundred signed and numbered copies. Copies of the book have rarely been seen in the past half-century.
Now, in conjunction with Joni’s 75th birthday celebrations, Morning Glory on the Vine: Early Songs and Drawings, will be made publicly available for the first time. This edition contains 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).
