The International Edible Book Festival is held annually world wide on April 1st, partially to celebrate the birthday of French gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755 – 1826), and partially to celebrate the fun of eating your own words.

An edible book can be simply defined as an edible object that somehow relates to books. It may integrate text, illustrate literary titles or content, or represent book form. You can read more about edible books at the official website, www.books2eat.com.
