Edible Book Festival

  Edible Book Festival April 1 2014                     

The 9th Annual Edible Books Festival is complete! Check out photos from the event and a list of winners.

What is the Edible Book Festival?

Around April 1st, bibliophiles, book artists, and food lovers around the world gather to celebrate the book arts and the (literal!) ingestion of culture.  Participants create an "edible book," which can be inspired by a favorite tale, involve a pun on a famous title, or simply be in the shape of a book (or scroll, or tablet, etc).  All entries will be exhibited, documented, then EATEN!  Photographs of all edible books will appear in the Edible Book Festival gallery.

The Champaign-Urbana Edible Book Festival is sponsored by the University Library and University YMCA, and supported by the generous help of campus and community volunteers and prize donors.
