CASE STUDY: Anne of Green Gables


Client: Quarto Publishing

Creative direction: L.M. Montgomery’s “Anne of Green Gables” is a classic of children’s literature, with its depiction of the heroine’s life on Prince Edward Island in the early 20th century. For this reissue of “The Anne of Green Gables Coobkook,” written by Montgomery’s granddaughter, we re-created the era and setting of Anne’s story. We photographed the 25 recipes, all inspired by foods mentioned in Montgomery’s beloved book, on location in a circa-1900s home in Upstate New York. An inspiration board guided our choices of vintage wallpapers, linens, tea service and other props — the shoot was a delightful step back in time.
