The PENGUIN PARADE Series


'PD' 1 - 14 [First Series PD1-11; Second Series 1-3, annotated as PD12-14] ]





The Penguin Parade series was the first real set of Penguin Periodicals. It was used to publish short stories, poems and illustrations by contemporary writers and artists. The first volume, which was published in November 1937 as Penguin 120 was edited by Denys Kilham Roberts, who went on to edit the first series. With the onset of the war and the advent of Penguin New Writing in 1940 the series ended. The frequency which in 1938 produced three issues, gradually diminished to one per year.

Penguin Parade was re-stared with a second series under the Editorship of J. E. Morpurgo. Despite a new cover, a new focus on critical and informative contributions, and the inclusion of photographs and colour plates - only three were produced. The experiment, which started in 1947, was short-lived and ended a year later.

We are pleased to include with each separate entry a full list of the contents of each volume of The Penguin Parade.
