For seventy years, Pan paperbacks have brought the very best entertainment to everyone. This year, we’re celebrating our big birthday and bringing our classic stories to a new generation. You can buy the Pan 70th anniversary collection now. 

This September, we’re celebrating the anniversary of the publication of the first Pan paperback, (Rudyard Kipling's Ten Stories) with the launch of the Pan 70th collection. In homage to the golden age of paperback publishing, this collection of twenty of our best-loved, best-selling stories have been redesigned in brilliant technicolour. Taking inspiration from the designs of our first seventy years of paperback publishing, the anniversary collection includes classic stories from some of the world's best loved writers. The full Pan 70th Anniversary collection publishes on the 7th September.
