Steve Hare, author of Penguin Portrait and an avid collector of Penguin books, visited the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies this week.

Hare talked about the history of Penguin books, the company's innovative and stylish branding and design, the business practices of the company and its founder Allen Lane.  He also brought a small selection of his collection for students to view, including some rare wartime editions.

Hare is a member of The Penguin Collectors' Society.
