Le Lièvre de Mars republishes out of print books and texts that were initially published over the last six decades. The idea behind this project is to give selected, classics or lesser-known works, a new life. Our mission is to preserve, reissue (or republish) and distribute works of children’s literature, from around the world, that have been acclaimed for their strong literary and artistic merit. In short, this is a content preservation project that involves selecting and republishing out-of-print works of children’s literature and illustrated books that have fallen by the wayside.
Founded by Nadine Robert, cofounder of publishing house Comme des géants, the idea grew out of her enthusiasm for past works of children’s literature and her desire to reintroduce them to young readers and their parents.
