Edible Books!

Posted on: April 7, 2013

Boy was it lucky I happened to stop into my local bookstore the other day (picking up an Iain M Banks book, of course).  My friends there let me know about the Edible Books Festival that was happening later than evening. A room full of edible books? why yes, yes I would like to attend! and so I did.

The Edible Book Festival was exactly what it sounded like. Hosted by our Book Arts Center, there were nearly twenty “edible books”, often punning the title. Submissions were from local restaurants, book stores, book clubs, and pretty much anyone who wanted to make something. We looked, we photographed, we voted, and then we ate!  Good thing I was able to snap some quick photos, as within five minutes of the winners being announced, the tables were rushed by hungry people. I heard Call of the Wild and Pair A Dice Lost were very tasty.

Ready for a chuckle? here’s the photos, with their punny captions:

It’s such an awesome contest! I don’t think I had a chance to really look as much as I wanted to. Call of the Wild was my favorite, too. Thanks for the pictures!

Do you know if they do this every year? I hadn’t heard about it until friday afternoon, good thing I stopped into Kazoo Books! I wish I’d gotten pictures earlier, I really had to push my way up to the front by the time I took them.

Yes, they’ve been doing it for the last 8 years. I’ve been to the last 3.

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
