Long-time fans of this blog may recall the Case of the Mysterious Book Sculptures. This was a real-life thriller when an anonymous artist in England planted beautiful book sculptures in different libraries, to show support and appreciation for public libraries (a practice of which we heartily approve).
The whimsy is apparently contagious. This time, high school artists plotted a secret campaign to stealthily plant their pieces in unsuspecting libraries. Kind of anti-vandalism, isn’t it? It became quite the status symbol for libraries across London.
Just to be clear: BPL is totally willing to be the victim of a mysterious art visitation.
