Gallimard

2011 is the centenary year for the French publishing house Gallimard.
The Bibliothèque Nationale de France is celebrating this anniversary in an exhibition that goes back through the history of Gallimard.
You can view some exceptional pieces, as well as unpublished documents, such as manuscripts, photographs, correspondence, reading cards, posters and audiovisual archives from the 22nd of March until the 3rd of July 2011 at the National French Library in Paris. For English residents, you can see what's on offer here.

The famous French publishing house was founded by Gaston Gallimard in 1911.
Since it started, it has been more than simply a witness to some of the greatest events of XXth century French literature - we've got Les Éditions Gallimard to thank for publishing Proust, Supervielle, Malraux, Saint-Exupéry, Nathalie Sarraute, Maurice Blanchot, Georges Bataille... the list goes on.
Gaston's heir and grand-son Antoine manages the business from the 5th rue Sébastien-Bottin , one of the narrowest street in Paris and also headquarters of Gallimard since 1930.
