Versant Sud jeunesse


Versant Sud jeunesse is the little brother of Éditions Versant Sud, founded in 2001 by Élisabeth Jongen. It was whilst discovering the artwork of talented youths at the school of art of La Cambre, situated 2 steps away from her office, that she decided to launch herself into the adventure of publishing albums for children. Assisted by Fanny Deschamps, who was a bookseller of children’s books, she appealed to the young illustrators of Brussels to create the collection ‘les Pétoches !’, centred around the strong theme of ‘fear’. They also published foreign author-illustrators whose graphic and artistic quality attracted them. They centre some of their publications around art, by publishing albums which evoke the great painters.
