The BBC have reported in this article that sales of e-books dropped by 3% last year, and sales of non-fiction are up by 9%. Taking advantage of this upswing are our Signature Books customers, who are listing our historic newspaper books. These theme books have experienced a 12% increase in sales in the last year, and we believe this trend will continue.
These beautiful and impactful commemorative editions are perfect for those looking for the perfect gift for that special milestone event. Each book within this range is created using the archive of a major national newspaper, allowing us to use original newspaper articles to give the recipient a window into the past. These articles have been reprinted with no embellishments or alterations, the content of these books is exactly as it was when the papers were first published, giving a unique window into your favorite part of history. From battles to the Beatles, enthusiasts can cherish their own piece of history in either a premium leatherette or a luxury black cover. The leather cover includes an embossed name in the RRP, and the green leatherette cover has the option to have the recipient’s name embossed on the cover, for an additional cost.
Our deluxe pictorial edition newspaper books include pictorial sections, together with dramatic reports from the time, bound in a luxury black leather, gold embossed cover to create a premium historical record of the events that shaped the world. The front cover is gold embossed with the recipient’s name and our beautiful ‘Remember When’ gift box is included in the Price.
Also included in this range of themed newspaper history books are our Decade Recipe Books. Those who dare can take a culinary trip down memory lane, or just simply read the recipes of their decade. The pop culture of most decades is instantly recognizable, and this handy book of recipes gives a new way to reminisce. Choose any decade from 1930’s to 1990’s and try the yummy recipes within. The opening page of each book can be personalized with the recipient’s name and a personal message. If the hardback option is chosen the book can be further personalized by adding the recipient’s name to the purple cover.
Though the BBC have said in their report that there’s been a 16% increase in the sales of children’s books, however we at Signature have found that our children’s books sales have increased by a whopping 23% compared to this time last year. Thanks to new licenses like Beatrix Potter from Penguin Random House, when looking at sales of our hardback books alone there’s been a rise of 132% in sales! With Thomas the Tank Engine and the Famous Five licenses also being added this year it makes you stop and think, could you be missing out on listing these best-selling books on your site?
