This would come under the random things that interest me portion of the book blog description LOL.
I couldn’t figure out how to include more than a link to the article of the BBC News story for Scotland, which I’ve included below the picture from that story for those who would like to read the actual story, but I just think this is so cool. Some unknown person has now sent a second book sculpture in the form of a World Book chest to Edinburgh Unesco City of Literature Trust (EUCL) in support of reading, ideas, libraries and such, which included wings, helmet and goggles for protection during the journey as reported by the article from an included message. As I am a lover of books and reading, I couldn’t help giggling a little and thinking how creative and interesting this was and how intriguing I think it would be to children learning to read to follow this mystery.
As I looked around some more there are pages with the previous book sculptures on linked pages at the bottom of this article where several other sculptures are shown over the past couple of years. I guess originally five were found at Book Week Scotland festival and others have shown up along the way and that only makes it more intriguing 🙂
