Aus dem Rückseitentext:
From cool allegory to haughty beauty, images of women have adorned paper money across the world for almost two hundred years. Proud Britannias and crowned monarchs, glamour-girls and cotton-pickers have all been summonedto proclaim the wealth of a bank, the power of a state, or the glory of a nation. Beyond their official role, however, the reveal how female figures on mass-produced objects both reflect and reinforce our conflicting pereceptions of women and their place in society.
