Dorling Kindersley (also known as DK or DK Publishing) is an international publishing company specializing in reference books for adults and children.

DK was founded as a book-packaging company by Peter Kindersley and Christopher Dorling in London in 1974, and in 1982 moved into publishing. The first book published under the DK name was a First Aid Manual for the British voluntary medical services; this book established the company's distinctive visual style of copiously illustrated text on a glossy white background. DK Inc. began publishing in the United States in 1991.[1]

The DK Star Wars contract was signed in 1997, and the company had published Star Wars books ever since.[1]

In 2000, DK was acquired by the Pearson PLC media company, which also owns the Penguin Books label; in the same year, Kindersley retired and was replaced as Chief Executive by Anthony Forbes Watson.[1]

In Germany the Star Wars books from Dorling Kindersley are published by VGS, a brand of the Disney publisher Egmont Ehapa Verlag, even though DK has a German subsidiary.

DK Publishing is one of the creators of Star Wars Reads Day, an annual celebration held in bookstores and libraries.[2]
