Cover Art for Four More Anne Reissues by Virago Modern Classics

Virago Press has just released the covers of four more Anne reissues that it will be publishing as part of its Virago Modern Classics imprint later this year: Anne of Windy Willows (published as Anne of Windy Poplars in North America), Anne’s House of Dreams, Anne of Ingleside, and Rainbow Valley. As I mentioned in January when I posted the covers of the previous Virago editions, the artwork for all these editions is by UK-based artist Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini.

Montgomery Ad 2: Anne of Windy Poplars

Today’s ad is for L.M. Montgomery’s interquel Anne of Windy Poplars, published in 1936 as the first of three later Anne books (to be followed by Anne of Ingleside in 1939 and The Blythes Are Quoted in 2009). It appeared in The Globe and Mail in December 1936.

This ad for Anne of Windy Poplars appeared in The Globe and Mail on 12 December 1936.

This novel was adapted into a Hollywood film in 1940 and formed part of the basis of Kevin Sullivan’s 1987 miniseries Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel (which aired on the Disney Channel as Anne of Avonlea: The Continuing Story of Anne of Green Gables).
