Edinburgh’s Phantom Book Artist Strikes Again

banksy book art world

It has been almost two years since the first piece of anonymous book art popped up in Edinburgh. Then the works of Ian Rankin where all the rage. This time A. A. Milne has the honor.

The piece is titled Preparing To Fly 2/5 and it recently showed up at the Leith Library with this quote from Winnie-the-Pooh:

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like ‘What about lunch?'”

Here is a sampling of the gems previously left behind by the mysterious book artist of Edinburgh :
