Mysterious and elaborate paper sculptures have been popping up in locations around Edinburgh’s literary scene for months, and Central Stn user chrisdonia has documented the awesomeness for all to see. As of yet, nobody seems to know the identity of the artist who is gifting these works to libraries, theaters, and literary spaces across the city, but I can’t imagine a more charming and marvelous thing to come across during a routine wander through the stacks!

Each sculpture was made using book pages and covers, and each has a note attached with the twitter handle of the place where the sculpture was left, the words “A gift in support of libraries, books, words, ideas,” and sometimes a more personalized piece of prose describing importance of the location.
