A sad book, similar to a cartoon character, settled in October 2021 on a bench in the courtyard of Printing House No. 3 on Liteiny. The author of the unusual sculpture is a graduate of the Repin Academy of Arts Veronica Bernard

Moreover, the sculpture is intended to draw attention to the fate of paper books, which in the 21st century are being replaced by electronic devices.
