Well, you could try their owners: http://www.bundesbank.de/,
though I'm not sure there will be much about design there.
A site that's worth a visit is
where, scrolling down the page, you'll find a personal
account by Ooitje Oxenaar of the design of his beautiful
Dutch banknote series.
In the PDF
you'll find a useful - though perhaps outdated, I haven't
reread it since - report on banknote design and security.
I'm also interested in the subject. If you find anything,
let me know.
