Last year CDN Publishing acquired the world paper money catalogs edited by Owen Linzmayer and published under the name of The Banknote Book.
At the time, I noted how the conversion of the content to a structured database format would lead to many new possibilities.
In this new Greysheet blog article, CDN announces a useful new feature for subscribers.
Greysheet and Banknote Book are excited to announce today that we have added the ability for subscribers to download an Excel file of the most current data in the Banknote Book for personal use. According to John Feigenbaum, CDN Publishing CEO, "the Excel checklist has been one the most highly requested features by users of the Banknote Book, and we are really excited to make this feature available to all of our subscribers."
To access the Excel files, users simply need to log in to the site and visit their Banknote Book landing page. From here, click the desired Chapter, and download the file. It's as easy as that.
Feigenbaum adds, "we have many more new features in progress for Banknote Book subscribers. Patrick Ian Perez, Vice President of Data and Content, has been working non-stop on pricing updates. Owen Linzmayer has been busy updating chapters with new entries and our production team is also working to incorporate the latest technology to deliver updated chapters on a nightly basis. This is one of the most exciting projects we've ever attempted and it's all starting to come together."
ABOUT THE BANKNOTE BOOK
Comprised of more than 310 individual chapters (based on country), with a total of 8,200 pages covering more than 77,000 types and varieties, the Banknote Book is the most comprehensive catalog of world paper money in existence.
Users can subscribe to the Banknote Book for as little as $10 per month. The best value can be found by subscribing to the one of our subscription packages.
This is just one of the planned milestones laid out in the firm's product roadmap. Many great possibilities are unlocked by the digital-first strategy, including print-on-demand, completing the circle back to the hardcopy format and country-by-country catalogs enjoyed by so many.
Once the roadmap is implemented for world paper money, the technical infrastructure could certainly support world coin data as well.
I don't know what Krause Publications former owner F+W Media spent its millions on before going bankrupt, but they had little to show for it. "F+W Media's past attempt to build an ecommerce business was cited by current company management as a major mistake." (Publishing Insider, June 19, 2019)
I think CDN Publishing is on a path to succeed where others failed, by using a careful step-by-step approach that sticks to the basics of the numismatic publishing business. We'll look forward to continued product announcements.
