money http://design.org/tags/money en Tales You Lose: Coin Recreations by Andre Levy http://design.org/blog/tales-you-lose-coin-recreations-andre-levy <p>Tales you Lose is an ongoing project by <a href="http://talesyoulose.tumblr.com/" target="Andre Levy">Andre Levy</a>, a Brazilian designer based in Frankfurt, Germany. Levy takes a variety of coins and hand-paints new and familiar faces on each one, giving a carbon-copied object its own life. Often, it only takes a few strategic lines and blocks of color over the coin base to form an alternate, recognizable character. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div
