February 2020 Sales Numbers

Diamond released its February 2020 sales numbers over the weekend and ICv2 has extrapolated those and determined actual unit sales. These numbers are for Diamond’s direct sales in North America only and don’t include Diamond UK or the bookstore market. It’s worth reading the additional information under the sales charts.

For the purposes of the AE Index, where we record initial sales month, Two Artist Edition format books were published in February 2020.

Diamond sales will never accurately represent or report the Artist’s Edition format market because it’s too small of a data pool. We won’t know more until publishers are willing to share their sales data.
