These illustrations revive a classic children’s book by Canadian author Lucy Maud-Montgomery, which is about a young orphan girl’s imaginative power and feelings. The dreamy, romantic mood of the story is captured by carefully developed details and delicate colours. By skilfully embedding the character in the background, the imagery reveals the protagonist’s deep connection to nature, whereas the window motif refers to a symbol for comfort and friendship used in the book.
