   Viking Press

Location:  New York, New York, United States
Description:  Part of Penguin Putnam. The Viking Press was founded in New York City on March 1, 1925, by Harold K. Guinzburg and George S. Oppenheimer. Their founding creed: "To publish a strictly limited list of good nonfiction, such as biography, history and works on contemporary affairs, and distinguished fiction with some claim to permanent importance rather than ephemeral popular interest." The firm's name and its logo, a Viking ship drawn by Rockwell Kent, were chosen as symbols of enterprise, adventure, and exploration in publishing. Launched in the fall of 1925, early Viking lists included books by August Strindberg, Carl van Doren Vita Sackville-West, Mohandas Gandhi, Bertrand Russell, and Thorstein Veblen
