Steve Hare was a member of the Penguin Collectors Society for 35 years, having joined in early 1980 as member 259. He was an officer and a trustee of the Society for 22 of those years, first as Editor of The Penguin Collector from 1993-2000, and later as Publisher with responsibility for the many special publications which the Society produced, until his death in March 2015.

Steve acquired an immense knowledge of Penguin Books and its history and always shared that knowledge generously. His crowning glory in print was Penguin Portrait: Allen Lane and the Penguin Editors 1935-1970, which he persuaded Penguin to commission from him in celebration of the company's 60th anniversary in 1995. He also wrote many articles on different aspects of Penguins and Puffins, and this selection is designed as a tribute in print to his unequalled contribution to Penguin scholarship.
