This was posted to the Webdesign list today. It's bad news because Glasshaus made User Interface, Info Architecture and User Experience oriented books. The Ed books were pretty good too, I don't care about Wrox though...

Dear all

Please note that Peer Information, our parent company, has just been declared officially insolvent (bankrupt). This means that all current book projects end immediately and there will be no more friends of ED books.

All of us that worked here are now unemployed. Please accept my apologies for the sudden announcement, but it came as a bolt out of the blue to all of us here - we knew the company had been in trouble but had been led to believe it would be able to pull through, this turned out not to be the case.


Further to my communication regarding placing Peer Information into liquidation, I would like to clarify that Peer Information includes the following legal entities:

- Wrox Press Ltd
- Friends of Ed Ltd

Wrox Press Ltd also trades as: Glasshaus, Curlingstone, Active Path and Tect.
