Bloomsbury Acquires Fairchild Books

Bloomsbury Publishing has acquired Fairchild Books.

This New York-based publisher specializes in textbooks and educational resources on visual arts-related topics such as fashion, merchandising, retailing and interior design. Kathryn Earle will serve as the head of Fairchild Books while Jonathan Glasspool will serve as the managing director.

Here’s more from the release: “Through its Berg imprint, Bloomsbury has been ex-North American distributor for Fairchild Books since 2006. Growth has been particularly strong in the Indian market, where Bloomsbury has recently announced it is setting up a new subsidiary company. With this acquisition, Bloomsbury will significantly expand its US presence and raise its profile through an association with a leading brand in a market niche where it is already well established.”
