The Éditions du patrimoine is the publishing department of the Centre des monuments nationaux and the appointed publisher for the heritage services of the Ministry of Culture and Communications. It therefore has a public service remit, its role being, firstly, to convey the latest research findings in diverse fields, including heritage properties and furnishings, architecture, art history and archaeology, and secondly, to disseminate information about heritage to a wide public. With around fifteen distinct collections – guides, illustrated books, theoretical texts, scientific publications –, the Éditions du patrimoine is geared towards amateurs and professionals, students and researchers, but also towards children and specific sections of the public.
With nearly thirty new publications published every year, either independently or in collaboration with the private sector, the catalogue now contains over 400 titles, regularly updated and re-issued.
The Éditions du patrimoine are present every year at numerous professional salons, in particular the Salon du livre in Paris, the Salon du patrimoine and the Frankfurt book fair.
