Joni Mitchell The Hissing Of Summer Lawns Album As Books Print

Joni Mitchell 'The Hissing Of Summer Lawns' Album As Penguin Books Poster Print

Regular price £19.99 Sale

Imagine if Joni Mitchell had written her wonderful 1975 album 'The Hissing Of Summer Lawns' as a series of novels instead of songs. This poster print shows how the whole thing might have turned out.

Each book in this print corresponds to a track on the album, arranged in the order they appear on the original release. They're all based on those wonderful classic Penguin and Pelican paperback book designs, with the books chosen to echo the colour scheme of the original album artwork.

The books, in track order, are: In France They Kiss On Main Street, The Jungle Line, Edith And The Kingpin, Don't Interrupt The Sorrow, Shades Of Scarlett Conquering, The Hissing Of Summer Lawns, The Boho Dance, Harry's House/Centerpiece, Sweet Bird, and Shadows And Light.
