Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Wednesday that it will release five classic novels with illustrations by Japanese artists.

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, with illustrations by Maki Minami (Komomo Confiserie, S.A)

The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald, with illustrations by Okama (Himawari!, Tail Star)

Seven Seas previously released the original texts of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, The Wizard of Oz and The Marvelous Land of Oz, and Pride & Prejudice with manga-style illustrations. These editions were released first in English, but Seven Seas' five newly announced illustrated classics were published first in Japan by Kadokawa Tsubasa Bunko.
