Hunter S. Thompson’s Face on the US $100 Bill

Thompson
Before Hunter S. Thompson died in 2005, the eccentric author and father of gonzo journalism could never have imagined his face would end up adorning the United States $100 bill.

That’s because it never will, of course. Thompson was a wildly erratic, unpredictable and often extremely inappropriate individual who refused to bow to convention and was known for being found at the center of many a controversy.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t imagine. With the Bank of England’s recent announcement that 2017 will see Jane Austen’s face gracing their £10 note, we couldn’t help thinking of what other authors we’d love to see staring up at us from our wallets. Thompson was just one design we dreamed up – have a look at our selection of authors on money.
