Penguin Books Penguin Books is now an imprint of the worldwide Penguin Random House, a newly emerging conglomerate which was formed in 2012 by the merger of the two publishers.[5] Formerly Penguin Group was wholly owned by Pearson PLC, the global media company which also own the Financial Times,[6] but it now retains only a minority holding of 47% of the stock against Random House owner Bertelsmann who controls the majority stake. Origins[edit] The first Penguin paperbacks were published in 1935,[7] but at first only as an imprint of The Bodley Head[3] (of Vigo Street) with the books originally distributed from the crypt of Holy Trinity Church Marylebone. Only paperback editions were published until the "King Penguin" series debuted in 1939,[8] and latterly the Pelican History of Art was undertaken: these were unsuitable as paperbacks because of the length and copious illustrations on art paper so cloth bindings were chosen instead.
