Federal Donuts, Philly's esteemed boutique fried chicken and donut shop that, in some way or another, put Philly on the map for destination fried chicken, is coming out with a book. It's projected to be released sometime in Fall 2017, and according to their website/public call for artwork, the book will chronicle all the best hits and gorgeous creations the store has in its armory — "recorded for posterity, so future generations can also gaze upon FedNuts and wonder, "What the hell were they thinking?"

After having just released the Zahav cookbook, the CookNSolo crew and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt publishing company are just getting started on the book's preliminary stages. Today, they posted a Call For Artworks, beckoning all donut-loving artists (of any sort) to use whatever medium necessary to create their own artistic interpretation of anything FedNut-related. Once completed, a high-res photo and mailing address should be sent to by June 15, 2016 for consideration. If an artist gets in, he or she will receive page credit, recognition in the Acknowledgements, and, of course, a copy of the book (signed!).

As a thanks for helping, all artists who submit, whether they get chosen for the book or not, will receive a FedNuts gift card.
