“My husband and I settled here in 1994, creating Editions Guérin soon after our arrival. We mainly publish books about mountains, which stand out because they are completely red. Red was an obvious choice for us, as when we started exploring the mountains, we soon realised that that was the colour people associate with them. Ski instructors are dressed in red, mountaineers have red socks, as well as red ropes. What’s more, it makes it easy to spot our books on the shelves of bookstores.

The mountains take on a life of their own through the pages of our books, with their canvas covers. The books are rustic, solid and majestic… just like the mountains themselves can be. ”

“I live in Les Praz and from here you can walk to the Crémerie in Argentière. It’s a really simple place in the woods, where you can eat the best croûte au fromage in the Valley. ”
