BUSH TEA is an collection of vignettes, the memories of one man's childhood in rural Jamaica in the late 40's. As he grapples with the onset of Alzheimer's  the simplicity of those early years are salve to his soul.

Once bemused by the many jars of unlabeled herbs in my father's kitchen cupboard in London,  I learned from him what he learned from his grandmother, that Bush Tea was the answer to all life's problems.


This variation on a drum leaf binding is letterpress printed on tea dyed Fabriano paper. The hand colored illustrations depict some of traditional plants that one might use for tea in the Caribbean.  5 x 6.5"  (edition of 8) $700 SOLD OUT
