Odd shapes, upside down prints, intriguing cuts and folds, and missing design elements are only a few of the different printing errors examined in this expansive collection on foreign error notes. World Paper Money Errors is a visually compelling avenue into the fascinating and rarely explored area of numismatics that expands on the hobby of collecting paper currency.

We've run several articles over the years about errors on banknotes from around the world.
I'm not aware of any other book focusing on world paper money errors, and was wondering when someone would publish one. Sounds like a nice reference.
