Joni Mitchell once printed a rare book of handwritten lyrics and watercolor paintings. She did not take it to the public but gave the precious gift to her friends in 1971. Now, the special book will be reprinted and made available to the masses.
The book, called Morning Glory on the Vine will be available to the public October 22.
“In 1971, as her album Blue topped charts around the world, Joni Mitchell crafted one hundred copies of Morning Glory on the Vine as a holiday gift for her closest friends,” the website reads.
“For this stunningly beautiful book, Joni hand-wrote an exquisite selection of her own lyrics and poems and illustrated them with more than thirty of her original paintings and watercolors. Hand-crafted, signed, and numbered in Los Angeles, the existing copies of this labor of love have rarely been seen in the past half-century.”
The book will be released well in time for Christmas and will make the perfect gift for Joni Mitchel fans.
