Created in 1988, Motus publications, established in the Manche region of France, under the aegis of François David, first published poetry for adults before gradually working their way towards literature for youth, which is now their main activity. Motus naturally interweaves its poetic spirit into its prose, and a series from its catalogue is also dedicated exclusively to poetry. Since 2019 Pierre Lenganey has become the new Publisher and with the help of the editor in chief Emilie Bouvet, the Motus adventure continue!

Each work by Motus is a project in itself, between book and object, text and image. The production is very free and eclectic, each title is a new adventure, a new way of defining picture books for youth.

Its production displays great diversity as well as extraordinary creativity. Traveling beyond the beaten paths, Motus enjoys surprising, whether it be in publishing poetic picture books or book-objects. A freedom and creative spirit that the authors and illustrators share with this small-in-size yet great publisher.
