    Cover designs for Hellas Banknotes 1822–2020, a bilingual (Greek and English) notaphilic catalog in three volumes, printed in full color. The font in use is DJR’s Roslindale Display Condensed Bold.

    From A. Karamitsos:

    The Hellas Banknotes catalogue describes the history of the Hellenic banknotes from the establishment of the Provisional Administration during the Greek Revolution till the nowadays European Union’s common currency unit, Euro. As Greece is a country with a turbulent modern history, which for 150 years was under constant civil or external wars, a very interesting (world widely) economic environment was created, banknotes using the currency unit of foreign countries, fractional currency, bisected and cut banknotes, internal loans’ bonds, values higher than the denomination (NN Issue) and much more that we will analyse through the catalogue. After a lot of research we gathered as much information as possible and we tried to write them down in few lines in every chapter.
