[BKARTS] Edible Books

Call for Artists

Have you eaten a good book lately?

The Center for Book Arts 

Presents Books2Eat 2005


The Center for Book Arts is proud to announce the Sixth International Edible Book Festival, an appetizing event celebrated annually by artists worldwide on Friday, April 1, 2005. April Fool's day is also the birthday of famous cook and writer Brillat-Savarin: a perfect date to eat words! At the Center for Book Arts in New York, the event is planned as a 30th Anniversary Benefit to help fund education and outreach programs.


Artists will submit a concept for their creation. Accepted proposals will match each artist with a chef in a unique and palatable collaboration to create an artfully tasty morsel. Books may be of any style or size, but must be made entirely of edible material. Succulent inspiration from previous international festivals can be found at www.books2eat.com.


Deadline for proposals is February15, 2005. Participants will be notified immediately. All accepted artists are invited to the benefit event, and will be able to taste their creations. All books will be photographed for the festival archive.


The Center for Book Arts, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1974, offers over 100 classes and workshops in bookbinding, letterpress printing, paper marbling, typography, and related fields: www.centerforbookarts.org
