Fancy indulging in a spot of bibliophagy? (That's your word for the day and you somehow have to use it in this morning's board meeting.)
The history of eating books has a long and respectable tradition reports Blake Eskin in the New York Times (although of course your kids have always known that).
And apparently, the International Edible Book Festival is a yearly event that takes place on April 1 (the perfect day to play with words!) throughout the world, uniting "bibliophiles, book artists and food lovers to celebrate the ingestion of culture and its fulfilling nourishment".
This year countries from New Zealand from Brazil are taking part, using everything from nori to butter cream and jello to create their masterpieces. How sad that all the art gets consumed immediately after exhibition! But at least the amazing creativity of participants is captured in their gallery.
Of course, the event is a great excuse for everyone to get together and socialise over tea! I enjoyed these photos of the celebration at the Los Angeles Book Arts Centre.
(You know what I'm thinking without asking ...)
