The art and design of Canadian bank notes: FB2-32/2006-PDF
L'oeuvre artistique dans les billets de banque canadiens.
Bank notes are the most tangible connection between the central bank and the public it serves. A bank note is a medium of exchange, a cultural artifact, a national symbol, and a communications vehicle. It must be readily accepted and secure against counterfeiting. Thus, the design and production of a bank note is a formidable challenge. The Art and Design of Canadian Bank Notes is the second in a series of books about the Bank of Canada. It is a journey behind the scenes to explore the demanding world of bank note design, highlighting the beauty of Canada's bank notes and celebrating the engraver's art.
