Mystery Books Sculptures in Edinburgh

Had to post this, after coming late this party, courtesy of the Beeb:

The Edinburgh International Book Festival is the latest recipient of the mysterious book sculptures that have been left anonymously at literary sites around the city.  Over the last year, the beautifully meticulous and intricate sculptures have been left at the Filmhouse, National Library of Scotland, Scottish Poetry Library and Scottish Storytelling Centre.

The Book Festival sculpture was discovered this afternoon sitting on the signing table in the Book shop, at exactly the same time as a sculpture gifted to the Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature was found in the Book Festival entrance tent.  Book Festival staff were mystified as to how they had been left without anybody noticing.”
