Markus Johnson’s online extra

Posted in Uncategorized by com360bu on April 14, 2011

 

My idea for an online extra was to explore the history and meaning behind the symbols associated with the back of the U.S. dollar bill. The way the graphic would work is that much like the image above, as the mouse moves over different regions of the dollar bill, the history and information about that particular symbol would come up. This could be representative as translations of the latin phrases like in the image above or a summary of why the eagle’s head is facing a certain direction or what the eye above the pyramid means.
