This year we at DK are incredibly proud to say we have turned 40 years old. Established in 1974 we have grown and changed over the years to become the publisher we are today. However, we have always stayed true to our fundamental aim, to inform, enrich and entertain.
Hmm but how to share our 40th birthday celebrations with as many readers across the world as possible? Why through the brilliant mediums of Twitter and Facebook of course!
We had tonnes of fun researching facts about DK (as well as how the world has changed in the last 40 years) to share with you. These ranged from how many Eyewitness titles we have published (150); to how many people have set foot on the moon in that time (0), to sharing DK photos of years gone by, kindly provided by former DK author Alan Buckingham.
By far the best thing about these celebrations were the fantastic comments and tweets we received from readers of all ages; from the USA to Canada and Australia you guys helped us celebrate our 40th anniversary in style.
Thank you all and here’s to another 40 years!
