Back in September, I described the mysterious (and lovely) book sculptures anonymously donated to various libraries in Edinburgh. The story has traveled around the world and book lovers everywhere are touched by the beauty of the sculptures as well as the generosity and creativity of the artist. Up until now, the name of the artist has been unknown. Recently, an Edinburgh librarian said he had figured out who the artist is. In an interesting turn of events, the local newspaper decided to poll it's readers to determine if the paper should reveal the name of the artist or honor his/her wish to remain anonymous The readers responded indicating that they would rather not know, they would rather live with the mystery. For more details, visit NPR for a recent update. What a wonderful story.
