I judge books by their covers

I saw these books in Gibert Joseph (a truly gigantic store in the Place Saint Michel which has every book you could ever want; in other words, heaven) and though I hadn't heard of any of the titles, I loved the covers so much I had to look them up when I got home. They in fact come from Zulma, a publishing company which was founded in 1991 and is dedicated primarily to contemporary French literature. I've never seen these books anywhere else and as far as I can tell they are only sold in France, but if you want more info you can check out Zulma here.


  1. If you were to judge a book by it's cover, what would be your take?

  2. Probably one of the first two, although I'm sad to say I don't have much energy for pleasure reading in French these days now that classes have started. If only textbooks looked like this!
