DK Publishing Established in 1974, Dorling Kindersley (DK Publishing) began as a book packaging company but experienced a transformation in 1982 with the publication of a unique First Aid Manual; the book had a very different and unique look, with glossy white pages filled with extensively illustrated text. Over time, this look came to define the company’s distinctive visual style. Today a part of the Penguin Random House global publishing group, DK Publishing continues to be known for superior quality and distinctive, highly visual books that inspire and entertain. Editors and designers work with freelance writers and illustrators to produce compelling books you’ll enjoy sharing with your little one time and again. Products include bath time books, touch and feel books, board books, children’s books, bedtime books, peek-a-boo books, pop-up books, baby books, bedtime books, potty books, pregnancy guides, cookbooks and more.
