BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT: SILENT WITNESS - WORLD WAR II CIVILIAN CAMP MONEY

Fred Schwan of BNR Press announced a new publication this week:
"Silent Witness  World War II Civilian Camp Money" by Ray and Steve
Feller is at the printers.   We'll look forward to publishing ordering
information and other background on the book as it becomes available.

Fred writes: "The book will be 8.5 x 11 inches, paper cover, 160 pages.
Ray and Steve prepared the book with color scans so that the book could
be produced in color. The question is should the book be in color or
black and white?  It boils down to this: would you rather have a book
in black and white at $20-25 or one in color at $45-50? Also, if you
would rather spend the extra money for the color, do you think that
collecting public shares your views/enthusiasm/extravagance?"

[Although setup costs are not insignificant, I wonder if it would be
possible to offer BOTH color and black and white versions for sale.
The multiple formats available for the Redbook have proven popular,
and what works for best-sellers can work for niche books as well.
For example, Harold Levi's on-demand book on the Confederate Cent is
available in both formats (I bought the hardbound color version).
Another option is to produce and sell the less-expensive black and
white version for the main market, but print color versions on demand,
or sell a CD with the color photos as a supplement.  -Editor]
