The Casterman publishing house, founded in 1777, has evolved to meet the publishing expectations of its time.

The current catalogue is built around Tintin and Martine, two works that are acclaimed all over the world by children and their parents alike. In addition to these prestigious pillars, Casterman publishes, both in children's literature and in comics, great classic series (Alix, Corto Maltese, Martine, Ernest and Celestine or Émilie) and innovative sagas (Lastman, UW2, Cherub or Bodyguard).

Also the Chronicles of the Obscure Cities of Schuiten and Peeters are published by Casterman.

All the authors chosen by Casterman build a personal work with an inimitable style. Because they tackle major subjects of universal scope, they offer a breath of novelistic inspiration, an opening onto the world and a humanist view of society or history. The creations of these artists often go beyond printed media to find other developments in audiovisual form. This is the case for books by Tardi, Enki Bilal, Philippe Geluck, Bastien Vivès, Jean-Marc Rochette, Gabrielle Vincent, Domitille de Pressensé, among others.

Based in Brussels and Paris, the Casterman teams stimulate the creativity of authors and are committed to ensuring that their projects find the best form and the widest audience.

Today, Casterman belongs to Madrigall, Gallimard's parent company and France's third largest publishing group.
