ITZEHOE 1921 Incredible Modernist Art!! Complete series German Notgeld Look!

$ 17.95

There is a lot going on in the artwork for this note. There is a modernist, almost abstract feel to the highly stylized graphic art, with some very interesting typography design and use of fonts on the "business side" of the notes. Especially for the year 1921!

For example, take a close look at the 1 Mark note and the position of the numeral 1 under the line-drawing of the man. No explanation needed!

The "hen" note has a similar theme. The words, written in northern Low German dialect (Itzehoe is in Schleswig-Holstein), again poke fun at the increasing worthlessness of money in the Weimarer Republik: it's not the goose laying the golden egg, but what the chicken is producing is "still money" (doch Geld)! "Wat mutt, dat mutt" I would translate first of all into High German as "Was muss, das muss" - a sentiment we often express with the words "que sera, sera" (whatever will be, will be).
