Les éditions Le Cormier was founded in Brussels in 1949 by Fernand Verhesen (1913-2009). Poet, essayist and translator, Verhesen was also a great discoverer who significantly contributed to making the French-speaking public aware of Spanish and Latin-American poetry.
Also strongly interested in typography, he created and printed it himself on a little printing press – the first Cormier books – and showed, during his life, an equal interest in both the choice of texts, and their physical presentation.
This is a philosophy le Cormier continues to follow today by only publishing four titles per year, edited and published by devoting the greatest care to the production of the actual book. The catalogue of the house distinguishes itself by a large variety of voices and the refusal of orthodoxy ; loyalty to poets of long-standing next to the spirit of discovery. The reader will find numerous Belgian and French authors, as well as important collections of Latin-American poetry.
