May 6, 2012 Paper Sculptures
Last year, a series of anonymous paper sculptures appeared in various literary locations around Scotland. Here are a few:
"It started with your name @byleaveswelive and became a tree.… 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 for you in support of libraries, books, words, ideas….. a gesture (poetic maybe?)"
"It includes a teabag filled with cut out letters, on the tag of which are the words “by leaves we live”. The cup on the top has a swirl of words which read ” Nothing beats a nice cup of tea (or coffee) and a really good BOOK”, and on the ‘tray’ next to the cupcake it says “except maybe a cake as well”."
"A wonderfully atmospheric street scene with what appears to be a silvery moon with wisps of cloud hanging from it. The cover says, “the stories are in the stones / Ian Rankin” … which is fitting as it has been sculpted from a copy of Ian Rankin’s Hide and Seek. Inside the book are an array of people with birds on wires and a streetlight… There are even goings-on visible behind some of the windows… "
It is well worth the time to take a look at the whole collection here.
More images of the collection can be found here.
