According to Publishers Weekly, founder Gianfranco Monacelli has bought back the 17-year-old art and design publishing house, which Random House acquired in 2008. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Monacelli will continue to use Random House as a distributor.

  • Actor-cum-performance artist James Franco is returning to General Hospital. His character, the creatively named “Franco,” will appear in an episode that will air in September. According to a spokesperson for the soap opera, Franco’s latest turn will be part of a long-term plot line that could have him reemerging later in the season.
