A note about Book Look- This is not a review, rather, a picture-filled overview of lovely or otherwise non-standard editions of books that I find interesting. Editions that have illustrations and/or annotations. Basically- tons of pretty images to show off a unique or special edition that I have or am borrowing.
Title : Anne of Green Gables (Amazon Link)
Author : L.M. Montgomery
Illustrations by : Maki Minami
Published by : Seven Seas Entertainment
*This specific edition can be hard to find, it is available on B&N, link here.*
I’ve been meaning to read Anne of Green Gables and this adorable version immediately caught my eye. The cover is so darn adorable!
This is a THICK book. The page quality is similar to manga volumes, which is to say that the pages are soft and highly textured, not super high quality, but still nice and the book is priced quite reasonably. ($13.99 USD)
The text is fairly large and legible.
This is not a graphic novel edition, it’s the full book with a small amount of illustrations of certain events or characters. The art style is just adorable!
There are also a couple of full-color pages.
The final bit that I really deeply loved is this inclusion of a map. Even when I watched the Netflix Anne of Green Gables re-telling- Anne With An E- I wasn’t totally aware of what Anne’s little corner of the beautiful Prince Edward Island looked like- I just LOVE this map!
I’m intending to read Anne of Green Gables this year but planning on trying to get this annotated edition. I love the big coffee table-style books and this story is lovely enough to warrant that treatment. Will be reviewing that one too when I procure it.
