Link: Dorling Kindersley.
Thirty years ago,Dorling Kindersley (DK) took on the challenge of creating visually engaging books for children on subjects that would compliment their areas of study and personal interest. The award-winning Eyewitness Books, DK’s trademark series, which began in 1988, never fail to inform, excite and inspire both children and adults alike. The series, which has sold over 50 million copies worldwide, is constantly expanding and the new titles will be branching out into more esoteric areas.
Dorling Kindersley publishes an extensive range of both adult and children’s reference titles – in effect ‘cradle to grave’ publishing. DK’s children’s reference titles are second to none. The list covers a vast range of children’s interests for every age group – dinosaurs, space, nature, history, religion, sport and science. In addition the publishing also includes a number of richly illustrated and highly accessible encyclopedias for learners of every age.
The adult list encompasses many subjects: gardening, conventional and holistic medicine, pregnancy & childcare, travel, cooking & wine, natural history, art, sports, popular culture, and languages. It includes manuals, encyclopedias, atlases, maps and handbooks.
DK offers an extensive website, with free e.newsletters, easily searchable booklists, subject browsing and much more.
