Photo Gallery: UC's 2015 Edible Books Festival
The University of Cincinnati community created edible books as part of the International Edible Books Festival on April 1, 2015, in UC's Langsam Library.
The edible book was initiated by librarian and artist Judith A. Hoffberg during a 1999 Thanksgiving celebration with book artists. It became an international celebration in 2000 when artist Béatrice Coron launched the Books2Eat website. Traditionally, the event is celebrated on April Fools' Day to mark the birthday of Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), a French lawyer and politician who became famous for his book, Physiologie du gout (The Physiology of Taste).
