Saturday morning surf report…

Filed under: Surfs Up — jackie @ 7:13 am

Good morning surfers…

It’s a cold, wet & rainy outside here this morning. A great day for surfing around the web so grab your favorite surfin drink and let’s go.

First up (cuz I’m hungry this morning) is the site for The International Edible Book Festival . From the site “The International Edible Book Festival is held annually around April 1st. To date, the following countries have held this festival: Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, France,  Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, United States of America, Russia. Hong Kong has just announced its participation in 2007. April 1st is the birthday of French gastronome Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), famous for his book Physiologie du goût, a witty meditation on food. April fools’ day is also the perfect day to eat your words and play with them as the “books” are consumed on the day of the event. ” You’ll def. want to check out all the past books in the galleries and you can also find out if there is a celebration happening near you. Bon Apetite!

If you are wanting to try your hand at binding a press printed book check out Convivio Bookworks . They offer some nice looking books which are available in unbound signatures. Right now they are offering a 15% discount off anything you order from their site through Monday March 19th.

Check out the site of Fibre Artist Joanne B. Kaar. She has some photos of pretty cool  books made with her own handmade paper.

Some yummy eye candy…mmmmm… Laurel Parker Book

That it! I’m off to find breakfast and get ready for my demo this morning. Have a great day ya’ll!

Surf’s up!
