Foundation year: 1857

Fayard is a 150-year-old publishing house featuring a wide array of genres across more than 8 000 titles. Its list consists of political figures, journalists, thinkers and novelists. Behind its walls, authors are discovered, sponsored, championed, becoming even, for some of them, “classics”.
Fayard is a brand name for intellectual essays that expand one’s knowledge, fuel public debate and push forward our society; for extensive investigations, from La Face cachée du Monde to Les Fossoyeurs or Le Livre noir de l’agriculture – vital tools for a democracy; for ground-breaking political and current-affairs non-fiction; for popular fiction, combining mass-market appeal and high-quality storytelling; a brand name too for foreign literature of global significance. At the heart of Fayard’s DNA is the wish to hand to everyone the keys to understanding our world. Always looking toward the future, Fayard ventures in 2023 into the world of graphic novels with Fayard Graffik and breathes new life into its backlist with the new Oeuvres Libres collection.
Several imprints have joined the Fayard ranks throughout the years: the paperback imprint Pluriel, Mazarine, Pauvert, and Mille et Une Nuits.
