Break books into the mainstream cultural conversation and play with their content in formats not traditionally associated with books to encourage occasional book buyers to engage with them on a deeper level.

Unlike other entertainment we consume regularly – art, television and film – reading is a mostly solitary experience. This makes it hard to make books a water cooler moment, leading to them not getting the attention they deserve. However, there are other things being covered in the media almost on a daily basis: politics and inequality, for example. With this in mind, we figured: why not give Penguin (and their books) the attention they deserve by making Penguin a witty, quick and unmissable political player? By commenting on political issues regarding inequality, Penguin addresses a global problem by simultaneously elevating their female writers. That’s what we call a win-win. Because if there’s one thing we know, it’s that the bad boys out there need a bit more female perspective.
