Prenez soin de vous / Take care


Gallimard , Un siècle d’édition 1911 – 2011

An exhibition of posters, supported by Institut Franҫais

15th May— 15th July 2011

To celebrate the centenary of the creation of Gallimard publishing house (Editions Gallimard), we invite visitors to go back over one century of intellectual history, disclosing the path of one of the most famous and enigmatic French publishing houses. Gide, Claudel, Aragon, Breton, Malraux, Joyce, Faulkner, Saint-Exupéry, Michaux, Sartre, Queneau, Ionesco, Pinter, Camus, Yourcenar, Duras, Kerouac, Modiano, Le Clézio, Kundera, Tournier… no doubt that the large number of authors whose works have been published by the Editions Gallimard would enable to trace the history of literature and ideas in the 20th century.

The famous white cover framed with red and black thin lines and bearing the initials « NRF » is the symbol of a multifaceted catalogue of publications ranging from the Pléiade to the Série noire and from children’s literature to collections of social sciences. Whatever the readers’ tastes, they can all get what they want.

This is a professional and cultural chronicle of a hectic century which saw another conception of publishing arising behind the walls or under the bright light.
