Anne of Green Gables Gets a New Look

From Publishers Weekly: 
Sourcebooks has announced its acquisition of exclusive American trade paperback and e-book rights to all of L.M. Montgomery’s copyright protected works in the U.S. ...The house will launch its program in February 2014 with the release of paperback and e-book editions of the six novels in the Anne of Green Gables series.  ...The Sourcebooks Fire books will feature uniform, newly designed covers and will contain an introduction by Kate Macdonald Butler, Montgomery’s granddaughter. 
Originally launched in 1908 by L.C. Page & Company in Boston and currently available in Bantam mass-market paperback editions, the series has sold more than 50 million copies in more than 20 languages. 
“My family and I are so pleased to partner with Sourcebooks,” [Montgomery's granddaughter] said. “...[my grandmother] would be pleased and, possibly, astonished, to know that Anne of Green Gables continues to enchant both returning readers and a new generation who are discovering her novels for the first time.”

    1. Oh yeah, way better. Anne was never meant to be blonde. Whoever did that cover art clearly never read the books.

  2. I LOVE these new covers! I've never read the books, but I would jump on buying these. Great feature :)

    1. Thanks! I like them too. I definitely recommend reading them, though the best situation would be to read them when you're, like, twelve, but reading them older works too. :).
      Thanks for your comment!
