2011. A total of 11 (so far?) 'altered books' - amazing miniature paper sculptures - were left in public buildings in Edinburgh, Scotland. If you have a soul, like art, books, sculpture, poetry, or even mysteries, visit Chris Scott's article.
Mysterious Paper Art of Edinburgh.
In 2011, mysterious paper sculptures began appearing in Edinburgh, Scotland's cultural centers such as the National Library and the Filmhouse. The artist is unknown. Each sculpture comes with a note -- "A gift. This is for you in support of libraries, books, words, ideas……". The sculptures and the sentiment are just enchanting!!! http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2011/11/29/142910393/the-library-phantom-returns http://thisiscentralstation.com/featured/mysterious-paper-sculptures/

Website where students can upload photos of themselves and fill it with words about themselves and their interests! I think this would be great for a poetry unit.
