I Like the Way This Mystery Person Thinks!

In this day and age, with budget squeezes and threats of electronic devices replacing brick and mortar libraries, it is nice to read about someone who supports libraries.

In Scotland a mystery person has been leaving elaborate paper sculptures in libraries. Each is accompanied by a cryptic note, which leaves no doubt that the creator likes libraries, "A gift in support of libraries, books, words, ideas..." Read about it here, or watch a video here.

The mystery person's work contains many references to the works of writer Ian Rankin. We have several of his mysteries on our shelf including Doors Open [F RAN].
Three friends, having met a crime boss at an art auction, decide to steal three paintings from the National Gallery in Edinburgh, coming in contact with forgers, a Hell's Angel, and other people with ulterior motives during their attempt.
I hope the mystery person makes his/her way over here--we'd love a paper sculpture!
