While working on our Featured Web Site this week, I learned about a book project on Roman coin portraits.
The www.romancoins.info team is currently working on a image collection of superior quality portraits of Roman Emperors and their families on Roman coins to form the base of an exciting book project available end 2010 to the Numismatic public.
Images submitted must be of coins EF or better of exceptional portrait style, regardless of nominal. Images of obverse and reverse are needed, however only the obverse will be shown enlarged.
The project will consist of ca. 500 highest quality Roman coins available with the finest style portraits. Images will be to the biggest part presented in large full page size in a book of ca. DINA4 paper size.
