Edible Book High/Low Tea

The Southeast Chapter of the Guild of BookWorkers is proud to

participate in the Fifth International Edible Book Festival by offering

the first ever Southeast regional Edible Book High/Low Tea. All those

interested and intrigued are invited to concoct a literary feast for

exhibition and consumption. The tea will be held in Atlanta this

Saturday, April 3, 2004. The Atlanta College of Art has graciously

offered use of their Student Lounge for our High Tea. It's located on

the 3rd floor of the Atlanta College of Art Building at 1280 Peachtree

Street, NE in Atlanta, Georgia. Parking is across the street.

The event is free, and open to anyone interested. The only rule for this

High/Low Tea is that all works of art must be edible and have something

to do with books!

From 12 - 2, the edible books will be set up for viewing. From 2 - 4

p.m., you sip High/Low Tea while viewing the edible exhibit. At 4 p.m.,

after documenting the work, we eat it too!

We will take digital photographs to record the event and all displayed

books. Our menu and photographs will be sent to the founder and event

organizer Judith A. Hoffberg of Umbrella Editions, and will be viewable

along with links of all participants around the world at

http://colophon.com/ediblebooks/ . The documentation will be used for a

potential (non-edible) book by Umbrella Editions.

What's an edible book?

Any book that is made out of food rather than paper and board. Please visit http://colophon.com/ediblebooks/links.html for inspiration

and to see previous edible book art.

High/Low Tea please contact:
