Poetree--A mysterious paper sculpture found in the Scottish Poetry Library with a tag addressed to the library's Twitter account. The tag reads: "It started with your name @byleaveswelive and became a tree.… … We know that a library is so much more than a building full of books… a book is so much more than pages full of words.… This is for you in support of libraries, books, words, ideas….."
