Publisher Note

“Creativity is a well-maintained tea house”, according to ink painter Mafalda Tenente.

“The Tea House Diary” is a minimalist notebook designed to inspire more creativity. Sprinkled within are five reproductions of ink paintings by the artist, and the daily habits used to keep her own creativity thriving.

This softcover A5 format in a discreet, warm grey cover contains 75 non-lined sheets for personal notes. All shared in a concise format, and shining a light on another detail of Japanese culture. This new slow edition can be appreciated as a beautiful journal, or as a mini personal change guide.
