Penguin Archive

The ground-breaking UK publisher, Penguin Books, comes under the spotlight in this film which examines a flagship AHRC project at the University of Bristol.

The University is home to the Penguin Archive, a wealth of books, letters, photographs and other materials relating to Penguin Books Ltd - from its foundation in 1935 to the mid-1980s. The collection is kept in the University Library's Special Collections.

Experts at the University are currently in the final year of a four-year research project into the archive, which was funded by a £650,000 grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
