It’s mean, but I can’t help but laugh.
3. Who Left the Sculptures?
A fun mystery out of Scotland: Someone has been leaving little works of art made out of books in libraries across the country. A “poetree“ was found in he Scottish Poetry Library, a coffin and gramophone in the National Library of Scotland, a dragon at the Scottish Storytelling Center, and so on. Each was left anonymously with a note that said “A gift in support of libraries, books, words, ideas…” After months, a music librarian stepped forward saying he bought a sculpture the year before that had to be by the same artist, and so new the identity. But before he divulged, Scottish media polled the country to find out if they thought the artist should be revealed. The result? Let the mystery reign.
