Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts
- Chicago- Illinois -See pictures-
The Columbia College Library, 3rd Floor 624 South Michigan Chicago, IL 60605- April 1st, 2003, 6-8 p.m
The Edible Book Show & Tea is the most amusing thing since sliced bread; in fact, sliced bread was a vital ingredient in
several of last yearís edible books. Created by Judith Hoffberg of Umbrella Editions fame (Melissa Jay Craig is your
hostess here at Columbia), this is an international event, which occurs in multiple venues and time zones and consists of
talented cook-artisans such as yourself concocting book-like sculptures made of food and bringing them to the lovely
Columbia College Library to be consumed. Some of last yearís edible books were made of yummy things such as peanut
brittle, salami, and of course the ubiquitous sliced bread. Documentation of the books and copies of the Menu will be sent to
the Central Archive in Santa Monica. FREE if you make and bring an edible book to share; $10.00 (to benefit the Bindery)
for people who are unsure of their culinary bookmaking skills and prefer to just eat books. Keep an eye on our web site for
details. Hours and exact location will be announced.
RSVP to MAKE a BOOK: or call Melissa Jay Craig at 312-344-6635 
RSVP to EAT BOOKS only: or call Michelle Ferguson at 312-344-7384,
