is delighted to present the
Penguin Classics Library
from 15 January to 15 February 2011
across all Landmark Stores in India
In 2009 Penguin Books India had announced a special promotion to celebrate the marvelous Penguin Classics range of books. The promotion included an open-air library, exhibitions, talks, readings, exciting online activities (including a classics blog), competitions and quizzes, and a host of other activities.
The promotion commenced with the very successful and highly appreciated Penguin Classics Library in New Delhi which was followed by equally successful Libraries in Bangalore and Kolkata. The open library, a unique concept organized for the first time in India by a publisher, had on display the entire range of Penguin Classics and provided readers with a great ambience in which to spend time with their favourite classic and gave them an opportunity to browse, read and discuss classics over a cup of coffee.
We are now delighted to extend this Library in collaboration with Landmark across all seventeen Landmark stores in the country. For a list of the stores please visit www.landmarkonnet.com.
The month long promotion will take place from 15 January to 15 February 2011 and will feature the entire range of Penguin Classics which will be available for sale. It will also include many exciting offers on select series and titles including buy 3 pay for 2, and many more.
The promotion will also feature readings and programmes in select cities.
The world famous Penguin Classics list offers an unrivalled range of more than 1200 books from around the world and across the centuries. Penguin is committed to making the widest range of the best books from around the world available to millions, in editions that are up to date, authoritative and readable. Constantly redefining the idea of what makes a ‘classic’, the list includes many of the best books ever written, of course, and many surprises. The list also includes a collection of Indian classics (Black, Modern and Puffin) published by Penguin India such as the The Ramayana, The Pancatantra, The Arthashastra, The Man-eater of Malgudi, the short stories of Premchand and Manto, and many more.
