MONEY. Edition Patrick Frey, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 256 pp. 33 x 22 cm. ISBN 978390599911 In English.
Publisher's description: Banknotes are mini-posters proclaiming an idealized world. Euro bills, for example, strive to convey a united Europe through the metaphor of bridges, while other currencies strive to tell stories of strong happy people engaged in physical labor or living in abundant fantastical landscapes. In Money, Zurich-based graphic designers Tania Prill, Alberto Vieceli and Sebastian Cremers conjure the "spirit that speaks from the ornamentation of banknotes," as Walter Benjamin put it, and show which pictures are used to imprint value on slips of paper that would otherwise be worthless. Presenting selected images and scenes from endless examples of paper currency, including portraits of Saddam Hussein and heads of roaring lions, the authors isolate elements of the different currencies to note specific features and stories. The hardbound book featuring 300 black-and-white and color images in full-bleed spreads is a graphic designers' and illustrators' "garden of Eden" of amazing images!
