David Bowie on the 10-Pound Note

Only in Brixton, though.

The September 2011 issue of The Brixton Pound, a monetary equivalent meant to promote local spending in Brixton, South London, includes portraits of Bowie, basketball player Luol Deng, British historian and educator Len Garrison and WWII spy Violette Szabo.

An interesting group, to be sure. Bowie graces the tenner in his iconic Aladdin Sane makeup. I have a US Dollar at home with a picture of Bowie as the Thin White Duke on it somewhere, but it is not legal tender.

I wonder which incarnation would go on the Loonie? The laughing gnome?

  1. I'm a big Violette Szabo fan - indifferent about the rest.
