Hachette Livre in France


In France, where the Group originated, Hachette Livre covers all editorial genres and the entire consumer and education book markets with some forty publishing houses. The fruit of patient, diligent work that began in 1826, today’s group of subsidiaries and imprints is the French market leader and has published more than 7,800 new titles in 2016.

In the educational segment, the name of Louis Hachette is instantly associated with schoolbooks and on a par with prestigious brands such as Hatier and Larousse. Around ten of the imprints cover general fiction and nonfiction and feature backlists with titles that are considered part of the national heritage.
The oldest dates back to the early eighteenth century while the most recent, Kero, established in 2002, became part of the Group in 2015. In the how-to segment, the three largest publishers – Hachette Pratique, Marabout and Larousse – secure the Group’s leadership. Hachette Livre has a strong presence in children’s literature as well as dictionaries and encyclopedias. Since 2008, when Éditions Albert-René, publisher of the famous Astérix series, joined Hachette Livre, graphic novels have also been among the genres covered.

At a time when an increasing number of consumers in France are buying e-readers and tablets, publishers are becoming increasingly creative in their efforts to adapt the wealth of content to the array of digital devices.

    Éditions Albert-René holds all rights to the Asterix books and all other works co-created by Albert Uderzo and René Goscinny. Asterix is a phenomenal international success with 365 million books sold in 111 languages and dialects. 2013 was an important year for Asterix, with the release of Asterix and the Picts, the first book to be written by someone other than the creators of the famous character. The 2015 release of the 36th Asterix book, Asterix and the Missing Scroll, was the publishing success of the year. Asterix will be back with his 37th adventure on October 19, 2017. Éditions Albert-René also manages film and audiovisual rights for the entire body of work in France and abroad. The Astérix movies have been major box-office hits: the four live-action films have sold more than 100 million tickets worldwide, and the eight animation films have also attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers. For the first time in 3D, the ninth feature-length animated film, Asterix: The Land of the Gods, was a huge success. There is also a theme park near Paris devoted entirely to the iconic character and his world. Owned by Compagnie des Alpes, it has attracted almost 50 million visitors since it first opened in 1989.
