If it’s Monday, that means it’s time for arty links…

A 1970 Charley Harper mural was covered up in a Cincinnati convention center, but now it’s being uncovered and it’s fabulous. And it's about space!

Crayola once had “prussian blue” as a crayon color – now it’s known as midnight blue. The story behind the actual Prussian Blue and its associated objects is pretty fascinating.

Iceland is a nation of readers – so much so that at Christmas, so many people give each other books that it’s a phenomenon called the “jólabókaflóð” (Christmas book flood). My kind of people.

The Pet Shop Boys wrote an operatic tribute to Alan Turing, and they talk about their creation and inspiration.
