"Today we celebrate a hundred years of Allen & Unwin – a whole century of publishing “Books that matter”!

On the 4th of August 1914, the same day that England declared war on Germany, Stanley Unwin opened up shop as George Allen & Unwin on Museum Street in London, and an incredible history of publishing was born
