  1. Hi Tony, I did sympathize with your wry comment about slow sales of numismatic books. My own book – published by Spink in the middle of the pandemic – has also failed to gain much traction despite containing some great content (in my opinion!). What I can’t quite understand is how in other fields certain books with even more obscure content seem to hit the bestsellers lists. Prof Alice Roberts (for example) has again hit the jackpot with her book “Buried – An alternative history of the first Millennium in Britain”. The topic couldn’t be more niche – a history of burial practice. Yet the public lap it up. Perhaps authors of numismatic books should all enter into a pact to buy each others work thereby giving the illusion of stronger sales.
