Paper Sculptures Advocate for Libraries, Words, Ideas

Retired California teacher librarian Jamie Boston alerted school librarians to a mysterious set of paper sculptures left in Scotland libraries, in support of libraries.  Every so often, another intricate piece of library art appeared in Edinburgh libraries, the Scottish Storytelling Center, Edinburgh International Book Festival and other public places. 

One of my favorite designs is a cup of tea and tea bag (right) that has these words: 
To @edbookfest 'A gift' This is for you in support of libraries, books, words, ideas...... & festivals xx

  • 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"
  • On the 'tray' next to the cupcake it says "except maybe a cake as well".
