Gifted : The Tale of 10 Mysterious Book Sculptures Gifted to the City of Words and Ideas Hardback

Description

One day in March 2011 staff at the Scottish Poetry Library in Edinburgh noticed a wonderful paper sculpture left on a table.

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, they appear to be the work of one highly talented and generous artist.

In a farewell note, the artist identified herself as a woman and an artist/artisan, and she announced that the project had ended.
