Artist Statement

"Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorite childhood books which is why I decided that I wanted the opportunity to recover the book. I chose go in a different direction then the traditional Anne of Green Gables cover because I felt like the covers are usually dated and don?t speak to younger audiences. I used a vector graphic to make Anne?s silhouette. This silhouette is set in black, while the background is a pale green, giving the cover a lighter feeling. I think that this also lets the cover speak to younger audience, while the silhouette has a more historical feeling to it." - Jessica Madden
