Anne looks

A first edition cover of Anne published in 1908.


According to Wikipedia, “  Author Lucy Maud Montgomery used a photograph of Evelyn Nesbit  — clipped from an American magazine and pasted to the wall next to her writing desk — as the model for the heroine of her book Anne of Green Gables (1908). ”


My favourite Anne depiction is very different.


The artist, Ben Stahl, is a former neighbour.

  1. Interesting, the photo of Evelyn Nesbit is not at all how I would picture Anne. I confess I have not read the books yet…is that awful?…it is, I know. With my 4, we are on the last book of the Little House series, and in my free reading time I am usually pouring over Charlotte Mason and such…there will be a time for Anne soon. So yes, I see Anne very much as Megan Follows, having watched them and love them.


  2. I’m with you on this one…I went to the Friends of the Library to see if I could find a used Anne to buy but there wasn’t one there today. I know I’ll be able to find one when I get to Washington in March…


  3. I love that picture of Anne too! There is one on some books that shows her sitting on a bench at the train station with carpet bag on her lap that I like too, but the way I think of her most is this one picture of Megan Fallows when she portrayed Anne in the series.
