If you’re about to start planning summer travel, you’ll want to read this.
Google has ceased production and publication of printed guidebooks bearing the Frommer’s brand name. Google had purchased Frommer’s Travel and Unofficial Guides in August of last year for $22 million. The search giant would not comment on the present or future of the travel brand name, in print, or its digital assets.
Typically the Frommer’s catalog contains over a hundred titles in multiple series, including its incredibly popular European editions. Competitor Fodor’s already has its covers and pre-orders available on online bookstores.
