Caurette was founded in 2016 by Jean-Christophe Caurette who was in dire need of inspiration, thus the eponymous debut of his publishing house.

Caurette publishes gorgeous artbooks by well-known illustrators and contemporary painters, producing collections of graphic novels and quality illustrated books for both adults and children. The projects we develop are diverse and fascinating, either originals, reprintings or translations of foreign publications. We especially enjoy working closely with an artist professionally, becoming immersed in projects for special artist’s editions.

In a nutshell, we publish many beautifully illustrated books, and most importantly, we always enjoy working on these projects. And because we love opening the doors to artbook heaven, we import, mostly exclusively, many exquisitely illustrated artbooks which you will find on our online shop, LiberDistri.

As of August 2023, Caurette’s coterie of staff is composed of ten employees, all happily immersed in forthcoming projects!

Born in 1970, Jean-Christophe Caurette grew up reading Astérix, Tintin, Lucky Luke and Gaston Lagaffe. Les Oiseaux du Maître by Christin and Mézières is also a part of that list, but that is a story for another time.

After studying business, he worked for Microsoft for two years before leaving to produce corporate movies for the next twenty years.

He met world-famous Korean illustrator Kim Jung Gi in 2012 and “accidentaly” became his agent leading him to establish his own publishing house four years later.

He likes chestnut cream, hiking, Mercurey, Burma and publishing books.
