Joyful and Triumphant

Cubs.jpgTriumph Books, a Chicago based book publisher located in Printer’s Row, has been acquired by Random House Publishing Group.

Triumph Books makes all those glossy, sports books that come out right after a big event, sometimes the same week as the event happened. They’re now starting to get into entertainment books as well (“The Bad Boys: Limp Bizkit and Eminem” is already being sent to most of our family members).

Triumph will remain in Chicago and keep its full time staff, and Mitch Rogatz, its President, will continue on in that capacity.

So way to go Triumph, keep it up, we’re happy to hear you’re staying here, keeping your staff and expanding your markets.

We’ll pick up “Britney: Unstoppable” just as soon as we get our paycheck.
