Back to publisher's list
Hubert Nyssen and Christine Le Bœuf, joined by Françoise Nyssen, Bertrand Py and Jean-Paul Capitani, founded Actes Sud in 1978 in the south of France and developed the company into a general publishing house. Far from Paris, Actes Sud also stands out thanks to its graphic identity and editorial choice to publish authors from all over the world. Actes Sud moved to Arles in 1983 and since then, has continued to grow while remaining independent, still driven by the desire to discover and share. Its catalogue (more than 13 000 titles) is mainly devoted to literature (translations from 60 different languages, as well as French titles) and welcomes authors from all artistic disciplines.
