The Paperback Revolution

From the site description:

Welcome to The Paperback Revolution, an online exploration of the history of paperback books.

From the 1935 launch of Britain's Penguin until 1960 the year in which dollar sales from paperback books first surpassed those of hardcovers the paperback revolutionized the readership, marketing, distribution, circulation, and reception of books and reading in the United States, Canada, and many other nations. This website begins an investigation into this history with the dual aim of inspiring further interest and research into both paperback history in general and in our local repository, The Edmonton Collection.

Fascinating. Definitely something to explore further.
