The Library Phantom

6 Jan

This story is not new and maybe some of you have already heard about the famous paper sculptures left in various libraries and museums all over Edinburgh, Scotland. It started in the spring of 2011 and only recently was the tenth and final sculpture dropped off at the Scottish Poetry Library in mid-November. These little works of art are breathtaking and were given as gifts by an anonymous woman to express her thanks for the continuing existence of libraries, museums, and books in Scotland. This person is amazing for putting all this time and effort into creating these little gems and then giving them away. A selfless and generous act. A magical and inspirational story to say the least!

    I had not heard of this, but I think it’s awesome! I wish that I was that skilled at doing sculpture.
