NPR has a lovely story about a mystery that has captured the interest of the Scots: an anonymous artist who creates incredible, detailed sculptures from paper and leaves them in various cultural spots in Edinburgh. The Scottish Poetry Library received a tree, the National Library received a coffin and gramophone carved out of a single book, an art house movie theater received a miniature film room with its audience staring in surprise at the mounted warriors leaping out of the screen. For nearly a year the gifts have been dropped off without anyone seeing anything.
The story and accompanying photos make a wonderful weekend read, and will give you a warm feeling about your fellow humans. Most of all, I love the ending.
