of the Publishers and the Published of Catalonia

Barcelona, 1984-


(Updated 16/05/2024)

Empúries was founded in 1984 by Xavier Folch i Recasens, a cultural activist; Miquel Horta, a businessman; Enric Folch, an editor; and Pere Portabella, a filmmaker. This publishing house was founded with the intention of sharing the most prominent Catalan and world literature by both celebrated and young authors. Its painstaking translations, meticulous editing, focus on high-quality works and works with a small audience, and its choice of a variety of genres are the strong points of this publishing house, which already has more than 1,000 titles.
