The Magic of Stories: Scotland's Book Sculptures with Cathy Marsden

We are delighted to announce 'The Magic of Stories: Scotland's Book Sculptures', a timed online fundraising auction in support of Scottish Book Trust taking place from 25 January to 01 February. In March 2011, a librarian found a delicately crafted paper sculpture of a tree, ‘growing’ from an old book, on a table in the Scottish Poetry Library. The artist left no name, but made it clear that this was a gift to the library. The sculptures promoted the importance of reading and learning, and the value of the spaces which enable this: libraries, museums, arts venues. The first Book Week Scotland was initiated by Scottish Book Trust in 2012 and, to coincide with this, the Trust commissioned five special book sculptures. It is these works that are to be offered in 'The Magic of Stories: Scotland's Book Sculptures', with all money raised going to Scottish Book Trust’s fundraising campaign to ensure that everyone in Scotland has equal access to books.
