FEATURED WEB SITE: FRENCH BANKNOTES

This week's Featured Web Site on French Banknotes is suggested by Martin Kaplan. Thanks!.

The banknotes designed by French artists and printed by Banque de France are in my opinion the most beautiful notes from the 20th century. The subject matter, striking colors, and a wonderful quality of engraving and printing make them immediately recognizable. Not only were these notes printed for use in France, but they were also printed for the French community and other countries as well.

Displayed here is a collection of France proper, virtually all of which were designed by French artists and printed by the Bank of France.

There is also a collection of French inspired banknotes used in the greater French community. My use of the phrase "French inspired banknotes" on this site is intended to include notes printed in France, or notes designed by French artists.
