Re: [BKARTS] Fourth International Edible Book High/Low Tea in April

This is another call for the Fourth International Edible Book High/Low Tea.
The Food Network is interested in this event, so please let us know of your

The Fourth International Edible Book Festival will occur throughout the
world on any day from 1 April - 5 April from 2 - 4 p.m. (Depending upon the
time zone.) The edible books are exhibited and at 4 p.m., tea and/or coffee
is served and the books are consumed. In 2002, the event was held throughout
April due to various considerations of venues and audiences. This year 5
April seems to be a popular day, because it’s on a weekend. It all depends
upon you and your location!

For this High/Low Tea, all works of art must be edible and have something to
do with books! Each participating group or individual is responsible for
its/his/her own audience and website. From 2 - 4 p.m., you sip High/Low Tea
while viewing the edible exhibit. At 4 p.m., you photograph the work and eat
it too!

All venues are requested to take photographs or record in video their event
and displayed books. Please send two copies of menus and copies of
photographs to Umbrella, P.O. Box 3640, Santa Monica, CA 90408. The
documentation will be used for a potential (non-edible) book by Umbrella
Editions. A description and links of all participants around the world will
be available at http://colophon.com/ediblebooks/books2eat2003.html

Tickets may be sold for the event, so that each venue can thus use Books2Eat
as a fundraiser for book centers and organizations.

Festivals, please visit the website.

Initiated by Judith A. Hoffberg over a Thanksgiving turkey with book artists
in 1999, the Edible Book High/Low Tea has become an international sensation
thanks to the website designed by Béatrice Coron, making the radio and TV in
2002! Look for the website at
