Mrs. White Has Tea

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


I wrote Mrs. White Has Tea when my daughter was two, and she begged me to read it many times a day. It is a little story of friendship and colors and tea and the gentle humor is suitable and enjoyable for all ages. A great gift for a friend!

Initially photocopied from drawings and set digitally in Bookman type with letterpress printed cover and tag, it was printed and reprinted, selling out several years ago at 150 copies.

This brand new edition of 50 revisits the same drawings and text and adds a unique ink and tea-dyed Stonehenge 100% cotton cover to each copy with pages the color of milky tea. Plus, it features a linoleum print of a cup of steaming tea and a title/author tag, both printed via letterpress.

The body of the book measures 3" x 3 1/2". It is hand bound with a pamphlet stitch (and tiny staple on the tag) with multicolored metallic embroidery thread. A joyful little teabag-shaped book!

Your story tea bag is lovely. I bought it to send to my Mom on Mothers Day. I know she will be as delighted as I was when she opens it.
Thank you so much.

Stunning quality of these painted papers, I immediately purchased two more packs. Just holding them inspired a new art piece and to me that's precious. Thank-you!

I feel so lucky to come across this fantastic Book Bundle. I have admired Alisa's work for many years. I have even purchased a few of her book art. I am so pleased that I have ordered another Book Art Bundle!
