About DK: Overview
Notice: On 1st July 2013 Penguin and Random House officially united to create Penguin Random House, the world's first truly global trade book publisher.
Established in 1974, DK publishes bestselling, award-winning and visually stunning reference books for adults and children.
From travel guides and activity books, through to food, history, film and much more, DK makes ideas come to life! Owned by media group Pearson PLC, DK is part of the Penguin Group, and also acts as a parent company for video game publisher, Brady Games, and travel/non-fiction publisher, Rough Guides.
DK has established a worldwide reputation for its innovative non-fiction books in which the unrivalled clarity of the words and pictures come together to spectacular effect.
Our adult titles range from travel, (including the award-winning Eyewitness Travel Guides) to history, cooking, gardening and parenting; plus a wide range of other subjects. We also publish an extensive children's catalogue that showcases a fantastic store of knowledge for children, toddlers and babies. Covering topics from history and the human body to animals and activities, DK children's books combine outstanding information with magical illustration and design.
We work closely with authors who are experts in their field - as well as a number of authoritative institutions like the RHS - to produce world-class books and products.
As well as creating beautiful books, DK is increasingly making content available in a range of digital formats such as eBooks.
However, DK content in all its forms is still characterised by quality, expertise and accessibility. DK is a brand that inspires
trust and we pride ourselves on creating books with international appeal, working with companies worldwide who share our values and ethos.
DK has offices in New York, London, Munich, New Delhi, Toronto and Melbourne.
