Amazing sculptures made from books have been found all over Edinburgh, crafted by a very talented artist who appears to be making a poetic statement to support libraries, the filmhouse and the storytelling centre. The mystery is that these sculptures have been left anonymously with a note addressed to the twitter address of the location. The full story is fascinating and well worth a read, check out the following link. http://community.thisiscentralstation.com/_Mysterious-paper-sculptures/blog/4991767/126249.html
The mystery art and literature supporter appears to be a keen fan of Ian Rankin who’s name crops up a few times throughout the work; and on one occasion he appears as a character sitting in the cinema audience. Fantastic! This may well turn out to be a promotional stunt by an artist whose identity will be revealed at a later date, but it is still a fantastic way to highlight the challenges that our libraries and community spaces are facing and show support to the staff who are trying to keep our public services up to a high standard whilst dealing with budget cuts, staffing restructures and redundancies.
Thank you very much mystery artist for beautiful works of art and even better, an intriguing mystery.
