Keep in mind, the paper money here is not suitable for printing, so ... no trying any funny stuff with it. It's meant for use within other imagery, like a collage, or to illustrate an article, or in a game as an object. Most are older forms of currency anyways, so other than image use, it would be pretty pointless to try anything else.

From coin collectors, to bankers, to working professionals, to stay-at-home moms ... we all have an interest in money. In fact, without some money, you're fairly limited in the things you can do and accomplish in life.  While I think we'd all love to live "off-the-grid" and make our way in life without need to work or have money to acquire the things we want ... most of us realize that you don't have to be rich to get, make, or acquire some things that make life easier, you do need a little bit to survive in today's world.

Historically there has always been some form of "coin" in use, from glass beads, to gold pieces, to minted money there has always been a way to exchange or barter for what we wanted. Bartering didn't use to involve the exchange of money or coin, but often goods for good, or work for goods so a medical man might offer herbs or tinctures to a patient in return for food or work.

For all anyone knows, there may come a time in our future where bartering for food or goods is the only way to acquire things we can't make, or grow ourselves. Nobody really knows what the future holds for humanity.

Books, magazines and newspapers have always been something that grabs my interest. I suppose that's because I love to read - I've been a voracious reader since I was first able to read, and that desire has only gotten stronger as I've aged. I still love to read. There is nothing quite like immersing yourself in a good book; when the story takes over and you forget that you aren't actually living through it, then you know you've found a great author.

Although magazines grab my interest a lot less than they used, sometimes you can still find good information and knowledge in some magazines. Oh, not those frilly foofoo types about celebrities or hairstyles or even fashion ... I'm talking about real knowledge ... National Geographic comes to mind, or even subject focused magazines like Photography Today, or Popular Mechanics.
