Since arriving in Switzerland, I have noticed many differences from my home in the United States. One of the first things, besides the four different languages, that I noticed were the banknotes of Switzerland.
I am amazed that a country would put, not dead presidents, but artists, writers, and architects on their money - including one of my favourites, Alberto Giacometti on the 100 CHF note. They are beautiful, inspiring, and amazing pieces of printed art.
Think I am a bit strange for writing about money? Well so is Marian Bantjes.
