LOVE this...

Apparently, elaborate paper sculptures have been mysteriously popping up all over Edinburgh's libraries -- here's the link.

"One day in March, staff at the Scottish Poetry Library came across a wonderful creation, left anonymously on a table in the library. Carved from paper, mounted on a book, with a tag reading: 'We know that a library is so much more than a building full of books… a book is so much more than pages full of words.… This is in support of libraries, books, words, ideas…' Nobody knows whether there are more to come and if so, where they might appear. "

How beautiful, that someone (or someoneS?) who loves books so much and wants to honor them, and honor libraries, would remain anonymous. These sculptures obviously took hours and hours to create, and would probably go for a lot of money. I just love stories like this...
