History

Avon is an imprint of HarperCollins.

Avon was founded in 1951 as a competitor to the very popular Pocket Books Company. Back in the days when paperbacks were oly 25 cents each, Avon published paperbacks in a variety of genres, including Science Fiction and Fantasy. Avon was bought by the Hearst Corporation in 1959, which sold it to the News Corporation in 1999, merging it into HarperCollins.
