                                                               ART YOU CAN 
EAT!
Fifth Annual Edible-Book Tea Serves Up Food for Thought: 
A Cornucopia of Books to Whet Your Appetite
 
WHAT:                       A banquet of books will be served up for the 
public’s viewing---and feasting---pleasure
                                    at the Fifth Annual International Edible 
Book Tea. The event is part art exhibit, part tea
                                    party---and you can eat the art because it
’s made of food instead of paper. 
 
WHAT’S TO SEE:    Children’s classics, detective novels, biographies, 
romances---
                                    every type of book imaginable will be 
sculpted from a smorgasbord of foodstuffs.
                                    Imagine chocolate shoes whose tongues 
tell tales. Or, baklava books with pages made
                                    of filo dough. In past years, artists 
have designed text on mobiles made from fruit roll-
                                    ups that looked like stained glass and 
written poetry on growing lettuce, which was
                                    harvested for a salad.
