>2 sunny: - I saw that too - neat, right?!

What a neat contest! I have a ton of (ahem, absolutely inspired) ideas floating around in my head but absolutely zero artistic ability! I can't wait to see the entries my fellow LTers come up with.

>4 UnrulySun: - Do it up! All entries are more than welcome!

"no performance art"... outrageous!

The cooking channel would be so boring if there wasn't performance art.

Do you need to include the book itself in the picture?

>9 chasidar: - No; you can if you wish, but it's definitely not a requirement!

You're late with this! The Edible Books teas/events are usually held around April 1. I used to participate fairly regularly at the Columbia College Center for Book and Paper Arts event, sometimes creating, sometimes just eating.

>11 lilithcat: - Better late than never! If we make it an annual thing we'll move it up next year.

Will you make an announcement in a place easy to see when all the entries are in and we can look at them? Or if it's too difficult for us to see them all, at least a good quantity? I don't have any time to be creative at the moment, but I love to see other folk's creativity.

You can see 'em anytime at http://www.librarything.com/gallery/tag/EdibleBooks2012 - not too many so far, keep them coming!

Thanks! Clever people.

Thanks for all the entries, folks!

You can view them all at http://www.librarything.com/gallery/tag/EdibleBooks2012 - we'll be reviewing them now and announce the winners soon!

Winners' announcement is now up:


Congrats to all the winners, and thanks to all the entrants!

I loved looking at all these creative entries even though I don't have a creative bone in my body. Congratulations to all the people who entered and thanks to LT and Jeremy for creating the contest.
