Pocket Books

Pocket Books, America’s first paperback publisher, was established in 1939 by publishing veteran Robert deGraff. Believing that Americans were ready for a more convenient and inexpensive way to read, he took his dream of creating a wider audience for books to Richard L. Simon and Max Schuster. Today, Pocket Books continues to be an industry pioneer with an innovative and expansive publishing program that includes Pocket Books Hardcovers, Threshold Editions, Downtown Press, MTV Books, G-Unit, and Star Trek. In 2005, Pocket Books introduced the Premium Edition paperbacks, a line of high quality, oversized mass market books featuring bestselling authors and designed to bridge the gap between the traditional mass market and trade paperback formats.
