Thanks to all our 2022 participants and voters!

Congrats to the winners!


Edible Books is a beloved annual creative contest that begs the question: WHAT IS AN EDIBLE BOOK? The only rule is to make edible art that has something to do with books.

Every year on the first Saturday of April, in honor of April Fool's Day and the birthday of French gastronome Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), famous for his book Physiologie du goût, we gather to display, marvel, vote, and (in non-pandemic times) partake in edible books make by our friends and customers.

The International Edible Books Festival started in 2000 and has been gaining popularity each year. Loganberry Books and Strong Bindery have sponsored the Cleveland event since 2004 and give out hand-made miniature book pins to all contest entrants and book awards to contest winners.

In 2020 & 2021, we moved the Edible Books Festival online for Covid safety, and we plan to continue this version in 2022. Check back for details coming soon!

Everyone is invited to participate, and entries of Edible Books are highly encouraged. Booklovers, bookbinders, cooks, and craftspeople of all ages are invited to participate. Create something book related, making sure all parts are edible. Actual books displayed with the edible entry are also encouraged.

Past categories, won by popular vote and awarded appropriate books or gift certificates:
Logan Award for Most Literary
Otis Award for Most Appetizing
Strong Award for Best Binding
Zober Award for Best Pun
