Edicions 62

(Updated 08/07/2022)

Edicions 62 was envisioned as the first generalist, universal and modern post-war Catalan publishing house. Founded in 1961 by Ramon Bastardes and Max Cahner, in 1962 it released its first book: Nosaltres els valencians by Joan Fuster. One year later it became a limited liability company to solidify as a publishing imprint that sought to update the concept of publishing company. It created numerous collections on a variety of topics overseen by prominent historians, writers and intellectuals, and it published works by great authors translated into Catalan, along with reference books and illustrated books. The distributor Ifac disseminated its works.
