In this revealing post, BBC Scotland’s arts correspondent Pauline McLean conducts an interview with the  anonymous artist who has been leaving delicate paper sculptures made from old books at locations in Edinburgh and around Scotland for more than three years.

In the interview, conducted via email to maintain her anonymity, the mystery book sculptor talks about her motivation for creating the sculptures, why she chooses the locations where she places them, and why she still remains anonymous.

But the real treat in this piece are the photos of the actual works themselves.  Prepare to be amazed!
