“Another work from the West Queen West Department of anoNyMouS Awesomeness. Sometime between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. on the last night of April, some fuzzy soul(s) pasted a swatch of green fun fur on the bus shelter bench in front of Woolfitt’s, once again adding some love to the corner of Queen West and Abell. This isn’t what they mean by the “Art and Design District”, is it?
Initially we were unsure if this was some kind of raver fashion-inspired glamourbombing or just a colourful upgrade, but we can tell you now it sure is comfy! Never again will we have to sit on cold, hard metal waiting for the Queen streetcar.”
”Staff at the Scottish Poetry Library came across something odd on one of their tables: a tree, carved from book and paper, and with a short, anonymous note addressed to the Library’s twitter handle @byleaveswelive:
‘It started with your name @byleaveswelive and became a tree … 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?)’
Since that time, more ‘book sculptures’ have turned up in the same way at the National Library of Scotland, the Filmhouse, the Scottish Storytelling Centre, the Central Lending Library, as well as two more during the recent Edinburgh International Book Festival.”

The sculpture of the dragon hatching from an egg that was left at the Scottish Storytelling Centre, and the note said the following:
“For @scotstorycenter - A gift in support of libraries, books, works, ideas….. Once upon a time there was a book and in the book was a nest and in the nest was an egg and in the egg was a dragon and in the dragon was a story…..”
