Vintage in the United Kingdom was initially created to publish paperback editions of books acquired by the prestigious hardback imprints of Random House UK such as
Jonathan Cape, Chatto & Windus, Hutchinson and later William Heinemann, Secker & Warburgand The Harvill Press. There are many Booker Prizeand Nobel Prize-winning authors on the Vintage list and the imprint publishes a huge variety of fiction and non-fiction. Over the years Vintage has expanded and the list now includes both great authors of the past — who are published under the Vintage Classicsimprint — as well as many of the most influential authors of the present.
