The Topps Company has inked a multi-year alliance with publisher Abrams, which will see a range of books hitting retail inspired by the firm's presence in sports and popular culture.
A collection of non fiction and fiction sports and entertainment-themed books and calendars will be published across all of the Abrams imprints.
The first line of books is due for release in spring 2012.
"We look forward to working with the Topps team to capitalise on the appeal of their iconic brand in all kinds of book formats, and look to provide great reading experiences for adults and kids of all ages," said Michael Jacobs, Abrams president and CEO.
Ryan O'Hara, Topps president and CEO, added: "We welcome the opportunity to greatly expand our partnership with Abrams."
