The Publishing House and its History

Carlsen Publishing was founded in 1953 by Per Hjald Carlsen as a subsidiary of the Danish publishing company Illustrationsforlaget/PIB. In 1954 the first Pixi books were published in the now universally recognised 10x10 cm format. With a total circulation to date of more than 480 million copies, ›Pixi‹ is the most successful picture book series in history.

In 1967 Carlsen encouraged German social acceptance of comics with the introduction of the ›Tintin‹ series created by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. In 1997 Carlsen published the first Manga series titled ›Dragon Ball‹ in the Japanese reading direction of right to left. This set the tone for the success of Manga in the German market. Since 1998 Carlsen has published the ›Harry Potter‹ series, written by the British author Joanne K. Rowling. This release triggered an unprecedented worldwide reading phenomenon.

Apps, E-Books, interactive picture books and the digital fantasy labels »Impress« and »Dark Diamonds« reflect the diversity of the Carlsen publishing program.

Surprising Stories!

Board books, activity books, picture books and nonfiction, narrative kids and young adult literature represent the spectrum of the Carlsen children and young adult list. Besides ›Pixi‹, ›Meine Freundin Conni‹ and ›Lesemaus‹ are highly popular brands for children aged from three to eight years.

The multiple award-winning list combines narrative literature of both German and internationally renowned authors and constantly surprises with successful debuts. Classics like ›Tintin‹, ›Gaston‹ and ›Spirou‹ still characterize the profile of Carlsen Comics, with the addition of an important and growing range of graphic novels. Increasingly, original editions by renowned German artists as e.g. Reinhard Kleist, Isabel Kreitz and Flix are being published. Carlsen Manga! presents amongst others the successful Japanese series ›One Piece‹ and ›Naruto‹ along with popular in-house productions by German designers as e.g. Melanie Schober and Martina Peters. The list of humorous titles is published under the label of Lappan and presents famous German cartoonists as Uli Stein and Ralph Ruthe alongside Martin Holtschulte and many others.
