All my life I have been inthralled with the art of intaglio engraving of the late 1890s specifically from currency and bank notes. This art style is some of the most intricate and timeless and is also daily over look.

A little over a year ago I quite my job to pursue my life long dream of owning my own creative business and develop my own ideas. It's been an incredible ride and to celebrate my one yearish anniversary I wanted to return to where it all started for me, the art of money. 

Last year I designed a fully custom deck of playing cards inspired by the art of money. While designing this deck I realized that I only scratched the surface of how incredible this art was. The art of playing cards is extremely small and I wanted to experience the art on a large scale, so I set out to recreate one of my favorite notes. 

I got my ink pens and vellum paper and set out to replicate the intricate line work of an art form that has all but faded away. Once finished the art took on an entirely new form. Seeing every single line that before were only millimeters long on the original note.

It is my hope during this project to create a piece of art that you as a backer can enjoy and get of glimpse of the beautiful art work of currency of the late 1890s.

If you back this project you will receive a 24" x 10" lithograph print of an original hand inked drawing of the 1896 $5 Silver Certificate. Lithography print will come rolled and shipped in a mailing tube.

Risks and challenges

With any crowdfunding project there are many factors that play into creating a successful project. Creating an incredible reward that both captivates and satisfies the backer is only 50% of the task. Producing and fulfilling the rewards is just as important as the creation.

If successful this project will be my 8th created and 8th successful project. I am fully experienced with the speed bumps that come along with a crowdfunded project and I am fully prepared to handle every aspect of it.
