In 1950, twenty-four-year-old medical student, Robert Delpire created the review NEUF in Paris, distributed by the Maison de la Médecine. It was the beginning of a unique editorial adventure that lasted 3 years and… 9 issues, and which led to the creation of Delpire Éditeur in 1953 (later to become delpire & co).
In post-war Saint-Germain, he made of this periodical an avant-garde artistic review. With NEUF, Delpire initiated collaborations and friendships that accompanied him throughout his career: Brassaï, Édouard Boubat, André Breton, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Blaise Cendrars, Jean Cocteau, Robert Doisneau, Paul Facchetti, André François, Robert Frank, Izis, Fernand Léger, Pierre Mac Orlan, Henri Michaux, Henry Miller, Mose, Michel Ragon, George Rodger, Willy Ronis, Jean-Paul Sartre, Savignac, Paul-Émile Victor…
In July 2021 delpire & co published the 9 issues of the journal in a limited edition box set.
