See also the Big 5 Chinese text and English translations for the 310 poems in the original collection of 300 T'ang Poems 唐 詩 三 百 首with additional poems that were added later on. This version contains 320 poems and is based on the Chinese electronic version created by Mr. Weichang Chan from the National Central University in Taiwan. The English translations are taken primarily from those in Witter Bynner's The Jade Mountain. Since there are only 310 poems in Bynner's collection, to complete this expanded collection of 320 poems the compilers added three translations from Perspectives on the T'ang, Yale University Press (nos. 190,191,193) ; and seven from 300 T'ang Poems, the Commercial Press, HK (nos. 001, 003, 039, 040, 042, 083, 084). Some seventy-seven poets are represented here, as are seven forms of T'ang poetry. This is also part of the Chinese Text Initiative at the University of Virginia.

The Nianhua Gallery features woodblock prints from the early Twentieth Century. According to the site "Most of the prints found on this site are reprints - meaning that they were printed in modern times from wooden printing blocks that were in use during the early part of the 20th century. The prints, therefore, date from the 1980s and 90s, but they do accurately reflect much older designs and themes. The prints originate with the traditional nianhua printing centres of Yangjiabu in Shandong province, Zhuxianzhen in Henan, Fengxiang in Shaanxi and Mianzhu in Sichuan." Includes sections on Making Nianhua; Stove Gods; Door Gods; Honor, Wealth, and Glory; Theater and History; Customs and Folklore; Auspicious Images; and New Nianhua. A bibliography is also provided. Edited by James E. Flath of the University of Western Ontario.
