A unique collection of bookish designs based on our classic Penguin paperback books. Each item has the iconic look of the original Penguin series designed by Edward Young in 1935.
He just wanted a decent book to read . . .
Not too much to ask, was it? It was in 1935 when Allen Lane stood on a British railway platform looking for something good to read on his journey. His choice was limited to popular magazines and poor quality paperbacks. Lane's disappointment and subsequent anger at the range of books available led him to found a company – and change the world.
'We believed in the existence of a vast reading public for intelligent books at a low price, and staked everything on it.'
Sir Allen Lane, 1902–1970, founder of Penguin Books
Reading habits have changed since 1935, but Penguin still believes in publishing the best books for everyone to enjoy, and that quality books published passionately and responsibly make the world a better place.
