The Paperback Revolution

The Paperback Revolution

The year is 1935, the place is Britain and the revolutionary idea is paperbacks. Can you imagine not having paperbacks? Some of my most favorite books that I’ve ever read are paperbacks. Most of them can’t even be found in hardback editions either!

So, let’s explore this revolution. Click the Revolution tab to begin. One of the neat things in this section is the Animated Paperback Timeline. (The timeline requires the Macromedia Flash Player, which you can get here if you don’t have it already). To explore the timeline, simply click on one of the sections of books. The timeline starts with 1935 to 1939 and goes through 1955 to 1960. I loved this! You can literally watch the birth of the genre of paperbacks. You can also watch as publisher names you know and love become big successes, such as Harlequin and Doubleday.

The Edmonton Collection – This section is devoted to the collection itself. Learn all about this collection by stopping here for a quick read.

The Gallery – The Paperback Gallery also requires the Flash Player, so I hope you downloaded it from the previous link I gave you. Here you can see and page through some of the books that you find on the rack. I chose “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. I got to see the covers, the introduction and even some of the publisher’s information. There is quite a sampling of old paperbacks for you to check out as well.

This was a fascinating site for me. I never really thought about the history of paperbacks before, but I sure am glad I did. Check it out!
