The Future of Small Press?

Soft Skull Press going in the subscription direction, forging a whole new business model (or reprising an old one?) for small presses. For $100, you can do a fiction subscription, and receive all the 2006 fiction offerings plus a couple bonus titles.

Makes perfect sense to me, for a press with its own identity. Does the logo on the spine make you want to buy a book? For some of the small literary presses, the answer is an emphatic yes. Kudos to Richard Nash for giving this idea a go.
