Stylus Publishing, a leading publisher of books about and for higher education, will be sold to Taylor & Francis and operate as part of its Routledge division, Stylus’s founder announced in an email to authors Thursday. Stylus has published hundreds of books on what it described as the business of higher education, in such realms as teaching, student affairs, assessment and leadership and administration.
“Routledge has a major presence in academic publishing, a strong editorial team who manage a higher education list that’s complementary to Stylus’, and offers the worldwide distribution, through Taylor & Francis’ extensive global network, that Stylus never had,” John von Knorring, who founded Stylus in 1996, said via email. Von Knorring was once president of Routledge before leaving to found Stylus.
Terms were not disclosed.
