Book Description
Description A stocky, dapper Bristolian who left school at the age of sixteen and went on to found Penguin Books, Allen Lane was the greatest publisher of the twentieth century and a major influance on the culture and political life of post-war Britain. He revolutionized our reading habits by his insistence that the best writting in the world should made available for the price of a packet of cigarettes. Decked out in their livery of orange and white, the first Penguin were published in the summer of 1935 and were followed in due course by Pelicans,Puffins and Penguin Classics. Though never a booish man himsel, Lane was adept at sensing the spirit of the age and always ready to follow his hunches: he commissioned Nikolaus Pevsner to write the Building of England, persuaded Kenneth Clark tomastermind the penguin Mordern Painters,and gave his backing to John Lehmann`s Penguin New Writing, arguably the finest literary magazine of its time.
