For all, but in particular for book artists, letterpress printers, and calligraphers
Create something around a favourite quote from Lucy Maud Montgomery.
CBBAG would love for its members to use this quote and it is a bonus that the Heirs of L.M. Montgomery have suggested it as well!
For all, but in particular for chine collé and digital collage artists
Create something using the image of Lucy Maud Montgomery.
Two photos in particular have been suggested by the Heirs of L.M. Montgomery and high resolution images are available for download:
