Making of the Mini Modern Classics
Introducing the Mini Modern Classics
Take a peek at our preview film for the Mini Modern Classics, starring the most mini things we could find, and showing once and for all that small is moreish, potent, exciting, important...
Making the Mini Modern Classics - Part 1
Here's the first in a series of videos showing the making of the Mini Modern Classics - from the initial discussions all the way to the finished copies on our bookshelves, via the printers.
Making the Mini Modern Classics - Part 2: Origins
Here's the second in our series of videos, showing the origins of the Penguin Mini Modern Classics: how two very modern authors (one of them writing over a century ago) inspired the collection and why Penguin chose to republish the greatest collection of short fiction in the English-speaking world in this format.
Making the Mini Modern Classics - Part 3: Copy-editing
Here's the third part of our series on the making of the Penguin Mini Modern Classics. This time we meet the Copy-editor for all fifty books, and discover all the people who have to read each story.
Mini Modern Classics in far-off places
Mini Modern Classics contain (at least) fifty worlds of adventure which you can escape into - from the utopian to the nightmarish, and all the shades of domesticity around the world in between. They hold hidden universes between their pages, and summon up lands far from us. So here we are, snapped in some of the more striking places that we've enjoyed the Mini Modern Classics; please join us and show us your own photos, be they at the back of a Narnian wardrobe or the surface of the moon (extra points for location-subject correlation).
Where have you read yours?
