Rare Joni Mitchell Lyrics, Poems, And Illustrations To Be Made Public

Marking the 75th birthday celebrations of Joni Mitchell, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will publish a rare collection of the singer-songwriter’s lyrics, poems and illustrations on October 22.

In 1971, Mitchell hand-produced a book titled Morning Glory on the Vine featuring a selection of her handwritten lyrics and poems, accompanied by more than 30 full-color illustrations, paintings and watercolors.

Harcourt will publish a facsimile edition of the book, called Morning Glory on the Vine: Early Songs and Drawings, containing the book’s complete original content, a new introduction written by Mitchell and a number of her additional paintings that were not included in the 1971 edition.

A special limited edition, signed by Mitchell, will also be published.

Ellen Archer, President of HMH Books & Media, said, “Morning Glory on the Vine shares Joni’s vibrant visual artistry alongside the words and music we have all come to know and love.”
