A what if? banknote design of mine

Recommended Posts

I created this banknote design on the fictional idea that, what if France sucessfully kept a colony in Brasil in the 16th century to today. This is a note of the "Bresil Français", the French territory in Brasil.

 

The note has the portrait of a Brazilian native indian woman, a jaguar and a depiction of the Amazon (I had to use a picture form the 10frs of Saint Pierre Miquelon, because I couldn't find a good one to use).

A beautiful design, Jazinta! You've got some good skills there. The design seems very apropos of both the French and Brazilian motifs.

Thanks everybody. Do you think that there is a name for this style of design?? Because I searched color engraving and color prints to look for the images, but it's not exactly like the French style.

I've always loved the French style - love it! Keep going!

 

If I can find more images, i'll put other notes of the series.

Okay, here is the back of a 20 francs (old) of the 1940s. It has black Brazilian women selling fruit in the design, which is by Jean-Baptiste Debret.

Here's a third design, 10 francs 1951. The note depicts the forest and a Brasilian native man (by Johann Baptist von Spix).

Very nice designs! So good that I can imagine someone years from now looking for the actual notes for his collection, based on seeing these depictions :)

Thank you. I was inspired to do these because I found others in the net that are multicolor and similar to the French (below).
