Gifted: book sculptures on tour


In 2011 an anonymous person left a series of paper sculptures around Edinburgh in various venues such as the Scottish Poetry Library. Now they’re touring Scotland.

Currently they’re in the Mitchell Library, Glasgow just inside the Granville Street entrance. If you’ve a free hour please go and see them as you’ll be amazed.


Each piece plays on the books and poetry they are created from and celebrate words, art and the freedom they give us. Here’s a fab blog post about the history of these sculptures and Chrisdonia has the best photos of them I’ve seen.

The exhibition is on until 27th October before moving to Dunfermline then back to Edinburgh.

While you’re there don’t forget to look at the exterior of the building which is stunning too.
