Summary
A beautifully illustrated history of paper currency from around the world offers a close-up look at a variety of international bills, detailing the various people, places, animals, historical events, and other subjects appearing on the currency from some eighty countries. Both a cultural history and an artful design book, this volume chronicles the origins of currency, the symbols behind the designs, and the often nationalistic and propagandistic motives underlying them. After a history tracing the path of commodity-currencies, the book looks at the subject matter, by category, behind the desings of various paper money from its origin to today's Euro
