Anne with an e (Anne of Green Gables).

Ft. Lauderdale, FL: 2019. Artist's book, unique, an altered book, signed by the artist on the rear pastedown, "DKrause." Page size: 5 x 8 inches; 20pp. Bound by the artist: in the original boards of a used copy of the 100th anniversary edition of this children's classic. The artist removed the covers, spine, and eight illustrations and inserted a strip of ochre leather which became the new spine. Details from the original black and white illustrations were then watercolored and placed on botanically-printed pages. The whole was then bound using original boards of anniversary edition and a slipcase made using the original spine of the book. The artist's title, ANNE with an e, is written in pencil by the artist below the cover portrait of "Anne." taken from a postcard. This altered book was occasioned by the artist's visit to Charlottetown, PEI, the setting for Montgomery's story. Item #11493
