It started with your name @byleaveswelive and became a tree.…News flashed around Twitter -- @byleaveswelive is the library's Twitter account -- and this became the talk of the Edinburgh literary scene. The news coverage made much of the "mystery" angle, but I don't believe for a minute that the creator's identity is really a secret. There just aren't that many people with this kind of talent.
... We know that a library is so much more than a building full of books… a book is so much more than pages full of words.…
This is for you in support of libraries, books, words, ideas….. a gesture (poetic maybe?)
As of August, when the post I linked to was last updated, these gifts were still appearing, at least seven so far. If this turns out to be a publicity stunt, it has certainly been a cool one. And if these really are just gifts given from the love of libraries and books, bravo to the creator.
