EDIBLE BOOKS HIGH/LOW TEA ON 1 APRIL 2000

LOS ANGELES AREA PARTICIPATION
Santa Monica, CA,  --The first Edible Books High/Low Tea will be held
throughout the United States and Europe on 1 April 2000.  All edible books will
be shown from 2 - 4 p.m. according to the appropriate time zone, and at 4 p.m.
there will be a high tea in which all books will be eaten along with beverages
such as tea and coffee.  This project was conceived by Judith A. Hoffberg,
Gloria Helfgott, Beth Thielen and Stephanie Later around the Thanksgiving table
in California in 1999.  This event will attract not only book artists, but all
those interested in food, books, and art.  As a result, a large turnout is
expected in San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles  and New York where the Centers
are sponsoring large attractive events with juried exhibitions and
festivities.  Smaller events will be held in San Diego, Tucson and Iowa City.

In Los Angeles, the Edible Books High/Low Tea will be held at the Sam Francis
Gallery, Crossroads School for the Arts and Science, 1714 21st St., in Santa
Monica. The exhibition will be held from 2 - 4 p.m. where all bookworks will be
labeled for recognition of each artist.  The consumption of the edible books
will take place at 4 p.m. at the Gallery with coffee and tea being served.
This event will be documented both by digital photography and by videotaping
and many of the events will be online after the event.  The menus for each
venue are being collated by Umbrella Editions in Santa Monica for an eventual
publication.

The website to link all the sites and venues hosting the Edible Book Event is:

http//www.geocities.com/books2eat

This event is supported by Umbrella Editions (Santa Monica) and Colophon Page
(http://colophon.com).  It will be recorded at different levels, due to the
last
minute creation of the art work, not to eat "past expiration date" book, and
also the different limitations of each venue's technical equipment.  Our
website will link to the other websites where you can post your images before,
during or after the event as it is deemed possible.  On the website Beatrice
Caron made a link to geocities for participants to be able to host their own
free website.  We would like to have digital pictures of some works and will
post a selection on the menu website.  We have two venues in France and hoping
for the UK and Japan to participate as well.

The Center for Book Arts in New York is having a juried exhibition fundraiser
and will start the event at 4 p.m. (EDT) due to the convergence of several
classes which will finish at that time.  We also have participation in France
and hopefully in England and Japan..  Columbia College in Chicago will also
schedule a full-fledged Edible Books event, as will the San Francisco Center
for Book Art, and small groups in San Diego, Iowa City and perhaps even
Houston.

Local artists such as Beth Thielen, Katherine Ng, Gloria Helfgott, Sue Ann
Robinson and many more will make this event unforgettable. Press preview
for the
show will be at 1:30 p.m. at the Crossroads School Sam Francis Gallery in the
Peter Boxenbaum Art Center on the 2nd floor. Metered parking is available on
Olympic Blvd. west of 20th St. The gallery is located three blocks from
Bergamot Station, a 10-minute walk.

This event has been organized by Judith A. Hoffberg, authority on artist books
and editor and publisher of Umbrella: The Anthology, recently published by
Umbrella Editions, which celebrates more than 20 years of publishing a
newsletter, Umbrella, which highlights artist books and mail art throughout the
world..
