A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

A Plethora of Book Industry Stats










Ironically at lunch the other day, I was sharing with a fellow colleague my desire for more and better research and stats on the book trade. Then, shazam!


UPDATE: These stats are a few years old. Never the less, they do prove intriguing.

Wow, more than 700 hours to write a nonfiction title! Just goes to show you how much goes on behind-the-scenes.

Billable at $75 an hour, that looks like $700,875.00. Yowsa. Something doesn't add up here. Wow, writing must be a labor of love, cuz if that stat is accurate, it ain't for the money.
