Pediment is no stranger to publishing books for newspapers.
In fact, the team has created hundreds of books for newspapers all over the country, including many books locally, from books about the Portland Timbers to the Oregon Ducks, and books about Portland’s history.
As for the Eagles, they took a chance, and started on the book even before the Eagles won the Super Bowl.
“It’s fun,” said Pediment’s Brad Fenison. “We are ‘mercenary fans,' we are fans of the team we have a book contract with. The Eagles was it this year, that’s the way it started, but then our employees have become Eagles fans as they go along,” he said.
“It’s something we have done before, but it’s always exciting, you capitalize on a book like this when the town is so starved for a championship like Eagles’ fans are."
