KBAC’s 12th annual Edible Book Festival joins libraries and book arts centers from around the world in this delightful April Fool’s celebration of the art of the book! The Edible Book Festival is celebrated in over 20 countries including Australia, Brazil, India, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, New Zealand, and Russia.
This year’s poster was created by Simon Kalil Borst, the designer of the Kalamazoo Coloring Book. During the event, we will display a giant black-and-white version of the poster, with lots of crayons, and invite everyone to help color!
Entering is simple — submit a “book” made from food. Anyone can enter and there are no fees or pre-registration required. Visit the pages below to see entries from previous years and to get ideas. Each includes a link to galleries of submissions.
