Telling the story of the work of one highly talented and generous artist, this book details the paper sculptures left on a table in the Scottish Poetry Library in Edinburgh. One day in March 2011, staff noticed a wonderful sculpture, carved from paper and mounted on a book. It bore a tag expressing support for the library’s work. From then until November 2011, nine more mysterious paper sculptures appeared in arts venues throughout Edinburgh, including the National Library of Scotland, the Filmhouse cinema, the National Museum of Scotland, and the Scottish Storytelling Centre. Left anonymously, new sculptures appeared unexpectedly. This book is updated to include the latest paper sculptures that were revealed during Book Week in November 2012.

Review:

“As symbols of love for libraries go, cutting up books wouldn’t be most readers’ first thought. But the delicate paper sculptures that have been left anonymously in recent months around Edinburgh’s cultural institutions have been enchanting.”  —Guardian



“It is an extraordinary thing that someone has done these beautiful things for absolutely nothing other than pleasure and interest and enthusiasm and love for places and books.”  —Lilias Fraser, Scottish Poetry Library
