[BKARTS] Volunteers Needed to Work with Children in Los Angeles on April 1

The Los Angeles Book  Arts Center is looking for volunteers to help with a 
children's project at our  Edible Book Arts Show on Saturday afternoon, April 1, 
see press release below  for more info on the event.  Volunteers will help 
out by teaching  children a simple book structure made out of a single sheet of 
paper.   Your help will allow children to create their own books, color them, 
write in  them, feel a sense of accomplishment and allow their creativity to  
flow.  We need volunteers to help out from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm,  please use the 
contact information below to let us know if you will be able  to help out for 
a few hours at our edible book show.  You will receive  all the cookies, 
cake, and tea you can consume, see a very unique art  show, eat some art and get a 
chance to make a difference in the  lives of children by helping them learn a 
new skill. We hope you  will consider joining us and volunteering at this 
most unusual art  show. 
Thank you.

Edible-Book Art Tea Party Exhibition Serves Up Food for Thought:   
A Cornucopia of Books  to Whet Your Appetite

(Los Angeles, CA) - A banquet of books will be  served up for the public’s 
viewing---and feasting---pleasure at the Seventh  International Edible Book 
High/Low Tea hosted by the Los Angeles Book Arts  Center and the City of West 
Hollywood on Saturday, April 1, 2006 from 2 p.m. to  4:30 p.m. Book art to be 
eaten promptly at 4 pm.  The tea party is a celebratory exhibit  of books as 
art---art you can eat because it's made of food instead of  paper.

These delightful, delectable works of art will be on display at  Kings Road 
Park, 1000 Kings Road, West Hollywood. Between 2 P.M. and 4:30 P.M.,  book-, 
art- and fun-lovers of all ages are invited to create book art and view  this 
year's entries and entrees, meet the artists, and learn more about book  art.  
Kids will also enjoy a special  activity where they can make their own books to 
take home with them. At 4 p.m.,  all of the book art on display will be 
served up with tea and coffee. This event  is FREE and open to the public.

The Edible Book  Tea Party combines the creative and culinary talents of many 
of the Southland's  preeminent book artists, book lovers, chefs, food lovers 
and children who will  be transforming fantasies of literature into a feast 
for the eyes and  palate.  If you would be interested in creating an edible book 
for the show  please contact us at (310) 657-2616 or _LAGourmet@xxxxxxxx 
(mailto:LAGourmet@xxxxxxx) . 

Every  type of book---children's classics, detective novels, biographies,  
romance---will be sculpted from a smorgasbord of foodstuffs. Imagine chocolate  
shoes whose tongues tell tales.
Or, baklava books with pages made of filo  dough. In past years, artists have 
designed text on mobiles made from fruit  roll-ups that looked like stained 
glass and written poetry on growing lettuce,  which was harvested for a salad. 
Photographs of these artistic creations  from
previous edible-book events can be viewed at 
_www.colophon.com/ediblebooks/photos.html_ (http://www.colophon.com/ediblebooks/photos.html)  or  

Book artists see the book as an art form. They share a  passion for books in 
every possible medium of artistic expression, from painting  and drawing to 
sculpting and bookbinding.
