More book sculptures in Edinburgh!

The mysterious book sculptor has struck again! So far, only a few of the fifty flowers she made have been found in Charlotte Square in Edinburgh. Each has a tag bearing a fragment of the Oscar Wilde quote from De Profundis: “…freedom, books, flowers and the moon.” (The full quote is “With freedom, books, flowers and the moon, who could not be happy?”)

This shenanigan started in 2011 and I hope it continues for years to come. There’s a book about it now, and an exhibition touring Scotland.

Thanks, Sarah Milteer!
