Alasdair Gray Lanark Sculpture

As part of the Scottish Trusts Book Week several book sculptures were hidden around several locations, one hidden in the Glasgow School of Art Library sculpture is  currently being exhibited in the main Library until 28th Mar 13. The sculpture was inspired by (and made out of) Alasdair Gray's famous novel Lanark

The beautiful paper sculptures were made by a mystery sculptor whose identity remains a secret, the same sculptor left a series of beautiful and anonymous sculptures around Edinburgh in 2011 - all of which celebrated the importance of libraries, words and ideas. All that is known about the sculptor is that she is female and that she believes passionately in the importance of libraries, books, words and ideas
