Barbara Ford's insight:

Have followed all the postings on Pinterest regarding these marvelous little works of intricate art as well as the buzz regarding who the artist might be.  I agree that leaving the creator anonymous only adds to the interest and the mystery.

Pore over her site.  You will see why she was fingered as the Mystery Edinburgh Book Artist (http://www.scotsman.com/news/whodunit-with-the-paperknife-in-the-library-1-1715453).

Barbara Ford's curator insight, May 17, 2013 9:58 AM

I found the story and the pieces themselves fascinating and agree with many that having the artist remain anonymous makes it all the more interesting for the mystery.
