Mystery Art Treasure Hunt

The BBC is reporting that five new book sculptures have been hidden around Scotland for the public to find, with clues being released online each day this week as part of Book Week Scotland.

The first clue will be released at 10.30 this morning.

While I'm still interested by this story which I've mentioned before (and I was pleased to see the famous Better Nation quote in the close-up of the new sculpture in the BBC report), this latest development feels a bit contrived. I hope it does actually have the effect of promoting "libraries, books words and ideas" and doesn't lose its intrigue in the process.
