i-SPY Books

The i-SPY series began in 1948 when Charles Warrell, known by i-SPY spotters as 'The Chief', began selling small paperbacks in his local Woolworths. As the series' popularity soared, so did the number of i-SPY titles available to spot. The series was supported by News Chronicle in the 1950s, then published by the Daily Mail until the late 1980s, when publication was taken over by Michelin.
