Penguin Books is a British publisher founded in 1935 by Allen Lane. Its most emblematic products are its paperbacks. The first Penguin paperbacks were published in 1935, but as an imprint of Bodley Head. It is now owned by Pearson PLC.
In the early days Penguin paperbacks had distinctive colour schemes: orange and white for general fiction, green and white for crime fiction, and dark blue for biographies. Some recent publications of literature from that time have duplicated the original look.
