Yordan Silvera, a student of Corcoran College of Art+Design and the Cuban National Academy of the Art, created this fabulous mini-book on the typography, technologies, iconography and color techniques used in modern currencies. As far as I know, this is a one-off book, but if it were for sale, I’d want to put this in my design collection.
