Joni Mitchell’s ‘Blue’ Reimagined As A Collection Of Novels

A lot of people have asked me when I was going to get round to making a Joni Mitchell album-as-books print. Well, that day has arrived - here’s the wonderful ’Blue’ reimagined as a collection of classic Penguin and Pelican paperback books.

This print is available now in the Standard Designs Etsy Shop.

Joni Mitchell, at ‘California Celebrates the Whales’ at the Memorial Auditorium in Sacramento, California on November 20, 1976, by Larry Hulst.

“How can there be weird chords? Chords are depictions of emotions. These chords that I was getting by twisting the knobs on the guitar until I could get these chords that I heard inside that suited me—they feel like my feelings. I called them chords of inquiry. They have a question mark in them. There were so many unresolved things in me that those chords suited me.”

Joni Mitchell
“Oh, you’re in my blood like holy wine. You taste so bitter and so sweet. Oh, I could drink a case of you, darling and I would still be on my feet.”

Leonard Cohen
“Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord that David played, and it pleased the Lord. But you don’t really care for music, do you? It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth. The minor fall, the major lift. The baffled king composing Hallelujah.”
