'Imag­ine a whole room full of books. Imag­ine a whole build­ing full of books.' We can't help mar­vel­ling at Ed­in­burgh's anony­mous book sculp­tor. Quite apart from cre­at­ing ex­quis­ite ob­jects, she gal­vanised an on­line flurry of pas­sion for li­braries over the sum­mer via her twit­ter feed, @_freetofly_.

So we were de­lighted to find out that mys­te­ri­ous sculp­tor also makes short films, under the alias of a book for xmas. You can watch our favourite video, which again combines a passion for libraries with beautiful, whimsical craftsmanship, here.

Once upon a time there were spe­cial places. Save li­braries.
