Inkling Books and the Oxford Inklings


Inkling Books is named after the Inklings, a group of writers who met in Oxford, England from the mid-1930s until the late 1940s. They included C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien, two writers who remain well-known today. The name Inkling, Tolkien said, was "a pleasantly ingenious pun in its way, suggesting people with vague or half-formed intimations and ideas plus those who dabble in ink."
