Election Interest Signals Print's High-End Future

Following the sell-out of post-election newspapers, Ed Nawotka looks at the collectable future of print. From Beyond Hall 8:

One immediate consequence of Obama’s victory was the boost in sales for newspapers. So now we have confirmation that print is not dead — at least as far as collectors are concerned.

This merely reinforces my belief that the long-term future of books lies in bifurcated markets: Half in cheap or reasonably priced e-books and the other half in high cost collectable volumes (be it what it may – art, photography, or even leather bound volumes of fiction).
