Chocolate comes in two forms, but not the forms you imagine. A Sad Story about Chocolate was a book I made in 1989 that I wrote when I was an art school student. Recently, I revisited it and revised just the ending from the perspective of an adjunct professor working with a union, calling it A Fight for Chocolate. It is more hopeful now and less angsty.

A Fight for Chocolate has painted paper covers with silver letterpress printed titling. It is laser printed on cardstock and glued securely to the soft cover, which is designed to open flat. The story is set in a digital Bodoni type. It measures 4 3/8 x 3 1/2 x 1/4". The edition total is 48 copies.

A Sad Story about Chocolate has a silver cardstock cover with black spine piece and rubber-stamped title on the spine. Inside, the "chocolate" is printed in brown from a linoleum cut. The story is photocopied from handwritten text. It measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 x 1/4". There are only a few copies left from the edition of 78 copies.

You can choose one or both from the pull-down menu!

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.
