Banksy of the Book Art World July 18, 2011 – Posted in: book arts – Tags: book arts, Books and Art, Libraries
“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.”
A short list of possible culptrits has emerged though it is hard to believe anyone would want to put an end to such beauty. And beside, I trust that with the current phone-hacking scandal Scotland Yard has their hands full.
Perhaps when all is said and done the pieces can be auctioned off to benefit the places they were left in!
