Over a number of months in 2011, an anonymous artist played a game of hide and seek with Edinburgh’s literary community, as a series of book sculptures were discovered in various locations across the city. Everyone wanted to know who the artist was and why she had made the sculptures. Still wishing to keep her anonymity, she agreed to cooperate in the making of this book, revealing her inspiration as her love of literature, especially the work of Ian Rankin and his portrayal of Edinburgh, and her desire to pay tribute to those places that open up the world of the imagination. In her own words, the enterprise was ‘In support of libraries, books, words and ideas’.
This updated second edition includes photographs of follow-up and specially-commissioned sculptures, and a post-script from the sculptor herself.
We are grateful to the Dr David Summers Charitable Trust for making this exclusive edition possible.
