Travel guidebook writers Arthur Frommer and his daughter Pauline will resume publishing books this fall in a new partnership with Publishers Group West, part of The Perseus Books Group, Perseus announced Monday.

FrommerMedia will launch with 20 titles in a new series, EasyGuides, and 10 revised and updated new editions from the Frommers’ Day-by-Day series, previously published by Wiley. The books will be published in paper and as e-books in October, November and December. The company plans to have 80 titles in print by the end of 2014.

The development is just the latest twist for the Frommer guidebook brand, which Wiley sold to Google in 2012. Arthur Frommer reacquired the brand at age 83 in April.
