When I was a kid, my father tried to get me interested in collecting stamps, but I’ve always been more fascinated by the artwork and design of paper currency and coin. After all, to quote the Liza Minnelli, Joel Gray number in Cabaret, “Money makes the world go around.” Yesterday, money went down, not around, like the balance of my 401k after the Dow plummeted 513 points. If only I had one of these cool pillows I found on Etsy by seller EkoFabric, I could have cried myself to sleep, comforted by the intriguing design of the old Zimbabwean two dollar note. Today, I’m going to do like Ginger Rogers in Gold Diggers of 1933, hum the song “We’re in the Money” while keep my mind on sunnier days ahead and cool design inspired by the almighty dollar.
