Most Read Reviews of 2018

For those who like a list, here are the reviews, articles, and essays that received the most traffic on Collector Daily in 2018, in ranked order by subject.

To be clear, these are not our editorial choices for some measure of “best” or “most important”, but simply the sums of the raw viewership data drawn from our analytics software. Perhaps we can best think of these lists, and some of the surprises that they contain, as signposts to what our particular community found worth deeper consideration in this past year.
