NBS NAMES DAVID YOON EDITOR OF THE ASYLUM

Pete Smith, President of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society (NBS),
announced today that the NBS board of trustees has ratified the
appointment of David Yoon, of New York City, as the editor of The
Asylum, the Society’s official print journal.  Yoon, whose appointment
is effective January 1, 2007, replaces E. Tomlinson Fort, of Pittsburgh,
who resigned in order to devote his full energies to his graduate
studies.

Yoon is an active field archaeologist, currently an assistant director
of a medieval excavation in France and a co-director of a regional
archaeological project in Italy.  He has extensive experience as an
editor, including non-numismatic materials such as medical and computer
books as well as numismatic work. In particular, he has done editing,
design, typesetting, and production work for the American Numismatic
Society, on their scholarly journal The American Journal of
Numismatics and several books.

Pete Smith said “The NBS is both delighted and honored to have secured
the services of David Yoon as editor of our 27 year-old print journal,
The Asylum.  David is widely admired as one of the most knowledgeable
and insightful editors in all of numismatics.  He will take our award-
winning journal to new heights of quality and accessibility.”  Yoon
commented, “I’m pleased to be working with the NBS, and I hope to be
able to build on the excellent work of the past editors of The Asylum.”

Smith said that the NBS welcomes contributions to The Asylum from members
and non-members alike, so long as they pertain to numismatic books,
journals, catalogues, and fixed price literature.  Submissions should
be sent to David Yoon electronically at dyoon@ix.netcom.com
