Take a visual tour of the development of money, from Mesopotamian stone transaction records to the microchips embedded in modern credit cards. Clear, lively captions describe the large-often life-size-full-color photographs and illustrations on every page. Special emphasis is given to modern-era European currency, with detours to Asia and Africa. A timeline of banking fleshes out the ways people have stored money through the millennia, and "did you know?" pages provide fun facts and world records.
