because reading matters...

Paper sculptures - 8 of 10
the stories are in the stones..
If you haven't seen or heard of the story of the mysterious Edinburgh paper sculptures, then you're in for a treat. Placed mysteriously and anonymously in Edinburgh libraries over the course of a year, the ten sculptures were placed individually, accompanied by cryptic notes supporting books, stories, poetry and most particularly libraries.

The sculptures are fragile, witty, beautiful and utterly exquisite. Guerilla art at its best.

once upon a time there was a book...

More about them at thisiscentralstation. They have been collected together into an exhibition and are now touring Scotland. Here's hoping the tour is extended to the rest of the UK in the new year.

A book called 'Gifted' has been published to accompany the exhibition, definitely on my santa wishlist.

And now the sculptor has struck again in celebration of scottish book week, five more magical sculptures scattered all over Scotland this time. Gallery here
