Banknotes, Bonds and Stamps

These photos are amazing; nice to reblog something positive and creative in this messed up world!

They’re really beautiful; makes you wonder how much time it took to complete the art work on these bonds, and whether the artists just focused on producing these or did they do any other fine art.

INTRODUCTION

This post deals with things I have been doing at James and Sons today. Before I go into the main meat of the post, the photographica that I have previously mentioned on a couple of occasions will be going under the hammer on  November 25th. This auction on October 28th, which puts us back on shcedule after our previous auction happened six days later than planned is a small auction, but very high quality.

CHINESE BONDS

Lots 1-12 in this auction are old Chinese Government Bonds (I will be putting out an official press release tomorrow) ranging in face value from £100 to £1,000. Imaging these items took a lot of work, particularly lot 12.

1 (2)1-a22-a (2)33-a4 (2)4-a (2)5 (2)5-a (2)6 (2)6-a (2)7 (2)7-a (2)8 (2)8-a (2)9 (2)9-a (2)10 (2)10-a (2)11 (2)11-a (2)12-a

Lot 12 waqs so difficult because of the effect of overhead lighting on it (see earlier pic with coupons on display) that ultimately it had to be done in the kitchen with the light in that room switched off.
