Little Larousse Illustrated 2015 celebrates 110 years
Since its inception in 1905, the Petit Larousse illustrated set itself the ambitious goal of educating « everyone on all things. » Indeed, the dictionary-present in two areas in three, is aimed at both parents and children. These illustrations provide a lightweight in this collection of universal knowledge. Le Petit Larousse account 62,500 words, 178,000 definitions, 5,500 drawings, plus a universal illustrated chronology; what quench the thirst for knowledge of many. Each year adds 150 new words « that are definitely included in our everyday language » and reflects « the evolution of the French language in time », explains Carine Girac-Mariner, director of the department Dictionaries & Encyclopedias Larousse . Among the new incoming personalities, we have among other actresses Charlotte Rampling and Nicole Kidman. And this year for the 110 years of the Petit Larousse, creator of Jean-Charles Castelbajac fashion was chosen to offer new coverage pages and guards as well as initials. So fashion and so this new cultural petit Larousse!
