Our Story

William Collins’ dream of ‘knowledge for all’ began with the publication of his first book in 1819. A self-educated mill worker, he founded a flourishing publishing house in Glasgow and went on to enrich the lives of millions through his publishing. Today, staying true to this spirit, Collins books are packed with inspiration, innovation and practical expertise. They place you at the centre of a world of possibility and give you exactly what you need to explore it.
