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.
