We go around the world in today’s post. Ready?

The Chinese zither known as the guquin is making a comeback in performance halls.

Edinburgh’s mystery sculptor is back! Hooray!

I’m fascinated by this article on the Al Nour Wal Amal Blind Girls Chamber Orchestra, but can’t find much more about them (in English, at least).

The New York Public Library has opened an exhibit on Percy Bysshe Shelley’s life and legacy. The Smart Set has an article on Shelley which puts forth the opinion that he was sort of an overrated jerk. I don’t think I agree, but it’s always entertaining to read dissenting opinions on poets and writers.

Woodcut Maps are just what they say – but they can be designed by anyone, with the help of Google Maps. It’s a fun way to keep a piece of geography with you, no matter where you are.
