en Limba Engleză Paperback – April 2010
What exactly can we learn about America by examining its paper bills? This illuminating text answers that question by exploring the social, cultural and historical contexts of paper money. Predicated on the assumption that paper bills speak to us through the deliberate use of symbols--letters, verbal and visual elements, as well as symbols of civic values--this book examines what has been conveyed to Americans via their currency from Colonial times through the present day. Topics covered include origin, design, creative and subversive usages, and counterfeiting.
