About us

At Editor, we like beautiful stories.
It’s no accident that we’ve been living one for 40 years.

This story started with a man, Henry Condamine, founder and current Chairman of the Group. Henry was just 21 years old when he founded Eliophot, his first publishing company in Aix-en-Provence. He already firmly believed then how precious and irreplaceable greeting cards are. That conviction remains!

And he isn’t the only one… Since Eliophot was created in1972, 500 employees have joined him to create the great Editor family.
