A creative contest: what is an Edible Book?

Who
Why you, of course. 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. Actual books displayed with the edible entry are also encouraged.

Why
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. All entries are also pictured on Loganberry's website, which is linked to the International website. (There's talk of compiling some of these pictures into a book!) Why do we do all this? Because it's a lot of fun.
