[BKARTS] 5th Annual Edible Book High/Low Tea

The Fifth International Edible Book Festival will occur throughout the                                                         world on any day from 1 April - 11 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.

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., after you have photographed the work, you 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.

Book Festivals, please visit the website.
