Joni Mitchell has released a collection of early song lyrics and drawings. The iconic singer-songwriter turns 76 on Nov. 7, 2019.
Morning Glory on the Vine, which she created in 1971, features more than 30 original pieces of artwork as well as song lyrics. The book collects materials the singer-songwriter assembled in the early 1970s. She originally created only 100 copies and gave them to friends as gifts.
The new edition includes a new introduction by Mitchell and new artwork.
As Mitchell told CBC's The National in a February 2000 interview, "I'm a painter, I just kind of lost my way."
CBC Books has five works of art and two song lyrics from the collection to share. Check them out below.
