Random House Reorganizes and Consolidates Imprints
I've honestly never understood the huge number of imprints at publishing houses. It is hard for even the editors to articulate why there are two or more divisions that essentially publish the same type genre of book. Today, Random House is announcing that it's going to consolidate publishing houses while hoping to maintain imprint identity.
- Random House will absorb Bantam Dell, Dial Press, and Doubleday Spiegel& Grau. This will be led by Gina Centrello.
- Knopf Publishing will absorb Doubleday and Nan A Talese (originally from Doubleday). This will be led by Sonny Mehta.
- Crown Publishing will absorb Broadway, Doubleday Business, Doubleday Religion and WaterBrook Multnomah. This will be led by Jenny Frost.
