Video: 2010 Edible Book Show

Last night, at the Western New York Book Arts Center, foodies and book enthusiasts gathered for the second annual WNY Edible Book Festival.  The festival celebrates the written word and the craft of bookmaking by encouraging participants to craft books entirely of edible items.  It is fun to see how much thought, humor and creativity the “artists” apply to the task.  As a participant myself, I find it a fun challenge and great way to lend support to a local organization.

WNYBAC’s founder, Richard Kegler of P22 Type Foundry, remarked at how this second event brought in entries that were entirely different from the previous year’s event.  Culinary students from Alfred State even brought up their “books” as a group.  The Edible Book Festival is an international event that pays homage to French gastronome Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin.  You can read more about the festivals held in other countries and see photos of their winners here.

Congratulations to Richard and the many supporters of WNYBAC for hosting such a unique event.  It has really captured the attention of WNY foodies and readers alike.
