Album artwork for Morning Glory on the Vine: Early Songs and Drawings (Hardback) by Joni Mitchell

Rough Trade Books of the Year 2019 No. 10

A beautifully detailed reproduction of a Christmas present that Joni Mitchell created for her close friends, Morning Glory on the Vine is a tantalisingly intimate snapshot of the great singer-songwriter circa 1971. Bursting with some of her earliest lyrics and illustrations from her sketch books, this is an eminently collectable volume to treasure forever.

In 1971, as her groundbreaking album Blue emerged as a singular commercial and critical success around the world, Joni Mitchell puzzled over what gift to give her friends that Christmas.The result was a handmade book, with only one hundred copies produced, filled with Joni's hand-written lyrics and reproductions of many of her stunning drawings - portraits, abstracts, random concertgoers, and more.

Each was given to a friend and, until now, the edition has remained private.Today, with Morning Glory on the Vine, Joni's long-ago personal Christmas present is a present to us all.
