The Gentle Art of Penguin Book Collecting

Presented by Megan Prince and David Jackson. Megan Prince has owned The Ironbridge Bookshop since 2014. She specialises in Penguin Books and her shop houses a huge array of Penguin both old and new. She is herself a keen collector and a member of the Penguin Collectors Society. David Jackson has been collecting Penguins since the early 1980s and has a personal collection of over 2,000 first edition Penguins, specialising in the first 10 years of Penguin production 1935-1945.
