Penguin Collectors Society


Welcome

The Penguin Collectors Society is an educational charity with the objects of encouraging and promoting the study of Penguin Books and of conserving historical material in institutions available to researchers.

First published in 1935, Penguins rapidly became a force for cultural good on a par with the BBC or, later, the Open University. Penguins, Pelicans (non-fiction), Puffins (for children) and many other series fed a popular appetite for good reading, attractively packaged and cheap. Penguin today remains part of one of the world’s largest publishers. The Society’s members, numbering around 400 worldwide, are Penguin’s keenest students – and collectors.

Members will not be surprised to learn that the Trustees have accepted the inevitable and are sad to announce that the 2020 Annual Meeting planned for 4-6 September 2020 in Aldeburgh has had to be postponed (until 3-5 September 2021).
