As of March 5, Rough Guides are now distributed in North America by Ingram Publisher Services. The move follows the purchase late last year of Rough Guides by APA Publications, which also publishes Insight Guides and Berlitz Guides.
Founded in 1982, Rough Guides has sold more than 30 million books, and the list includes more than 260 travel guides to more than 120 destinations, e-books, country and city guides, pocket guides and a website.
APA Publications CEO René Frey said, "Our rebuild and re-launch of Insight Guides has demonstrated our commitment to APA's heritage, and today we take responsibility for the revitalization of Rough Guides with even greater confidence. [The purchase of Rough Guides] truly cements our position as a dedicated specialist in the travel publishing arena."
