There’s a German idiom – “nicht schön aber selten” (not pretty, but rare). It’s used to describe things that aren’t exactly beautiful, great, exciting, but at least, well, rare. The title of this site is a play on it: wunderschön aber selten liberally translates to incredibly beautiful, but rare. This is a place where I’ve been gathering these kinds of things for over 13 years.
