Unusually for a modern coin book, Tameanko contains no photos at all. There are simple line drawings, but in terms of communicating what a building looks like on a coin, one might as well just stick with text. There are great variations in quality
between line drawings. Some 19th century artists managed to convey the physicality of a coin through careful depiction of wear, edges, defects, and use of shading. But not in this case, the illustrations in this book are diagrams so you can count the pillars on a temple, rather than artistic renderings of an ancient coin.
