Ten Speed Press, a Berkeley, Calif.-based independent publisher of nonfiction books, has been acquired by Random House Inc. The purchase was completed late last month and the terms of the agreement between the two companies, which are both privately held, were not disclosed.
Ten Speed Press, which was founded in 1971 by Philip Wood, publishes children's books as well as books in the business and career, cookbook, and mind, body and spirit categories under its four imprints: Ten Speed Press, Celestial Arts, Crossing Press and Tricycle Press. The company publishes more than 100 new hardcovers and trade paperbacks annually and has a backlist of more than 1,000 active titles.
