How old were you when you last read Anne of Green Gables?

Today Tundra (Random House Canada) is releasing a new edition, along with all the books in the series by L. M. Montgomery!

You can buy the box set or the buy them individually. I had fun thinking about how all the spines might work together when sitting on a shelf. A little landscape for you: http://instagram.com/p/rpX02tIwDb/Annex8

Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Avonlea
Anne of the Island
Anne of Windy Poplars
Anne’s House of Dreams
Anne of Ingleside
Rainbow Valley
Rilla of Ingleside
THE SET – this is a preorder item – Released Sept. 23rd

It is amazing how a book can stay with you and shape the way you see the world. It wasn’t until I revisited these stories as a adult that I realized that some of the place names I have been using all these years must have taken from the Anne series when I was a girl. I have a Cathedral Road by my childhood home and like Anne, I dreamed of getting married there.  And… like Anne, a friend and I memorized Tennyson. Though neither of us ever pretended to be Elaine, floating down the river.

L. M. Montgomery is a Canadian icon and these are such wonderful stories. It was a dream to illustrate the covers for these books and work with Kelly Hill (the designer) at Tundra.

NSCAD – ROAR

I have donated the Artist Proof of the Anne of Green Gables cover to an auction that helps to raise some money for art students starting out at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. The Auction is called ROAR if you would like to make a bid.

On Tumblr you can see some larger images too: http://djevojka.tumblr.com/post/90248200862/cover-art-by-elly-mackay

Hope you will enjoy these books and pick up a copy or the whole set! Look for a post on Emily of New Moon soon!

    • Thanks Sarah! So happy you like them. Great post on Montgomery’s scrapbooks! I hadn’t realized the connection with Point Pleasant Park. My husband and I went for many walks there when we were first getting to know each other. Such a beautiful place.
