On April 10, the Edible Book Festival took over Room 116 at Memorial Library, attracting over 200 visitors and viewers of many creative, clever entries. The Libraries News & Events article recapped the event. In case you didn't get to see it this year, here are some more pictures - useful for inspiration for next year, too!
Deep End of the Ocean by Nancy McClements was some of the prettiest Jell-O ever.
In the Cut was a bologna flip-book like we've never seen, by Jeannine Shinoda, the artist behind (m)eat.
Also fantastically clever was the Reference Department's Chicago Manual of Style.
Kids' books inspired many entries, including the towering Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! by Stephanie Unertl.
Stinky Cheese Man by Team ILL was a multi-sensory experience; Charlotte's Web by Willow, Autumn and Nola Walker was gorgeous.
A Day no Pigs Would Die by Erin Anthony and A Game of Scones by Deb & Hannah Nies elicited many an LOL.
Even more pictures are on Flickr. Enjoy!
