A beautiful little booky mystery...and Scottish to boot!

Oh my!  I've just watched this BBC clip on an anonymous paper artist who has been getting all the Edinburgh folks in a dizzy, and it's not hard to see why. 

"A gift in support of libraries, books, words, ideas….. and all things *magic*"

So some little crafty, paper genius is 'gifting' these intricate, delicate and magical sculptures to various cultural centres in Edinburgh, Scotland....libraries, museums and the lovely Film house cinema in honour - of their work.  The artist leaves messages and clues alongside the sculptures.  Quotes and inspiration from the work of Ian Rankin and Edwin Morgan appear, alongside delicate paper cuttings and mini paper mache sculptures, all of which seem to jump out of lovely!!!

I found these images and more detailed information on the sculptures at this on line article.


(This makes me a little homesick for Scotland and Edinburgh!)
