In 1971, as her album Blue topped charts around the world, singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell handcrafted one hundred copies of Morning Glory on the Vine as a holiday gift for a select group of friends. The book is a compendium of Joni Mitchell’s handwritten lyrics and watercolor paintings.

Last month Mitchell made the book available to the public for the first time. Morning Glory on the Vine Early Songs and Drawings by Joni Mitchell contains a hand-written selection of Joni Mitchell’s lyrics and poems, illustrated with more than thirty of her original paintings and watercolors.

In a past interview about her artwork and her music she said, “I have always thought of myself as a painter derailed by circumstance.”

Mitchell recently Tweeted about her book release: “I always dreamed of seeing my book in a bookstore window. This feels even better than I imagined.”
