    The Seoul edition of Cartoville, a popular tour guidebook published by the renowned French publisher Gallimard, was published on March 15.

    The Seoul edition of Cartoville, which a group of professional tourism writers wrote after gathering information by visiting Seoul in person for one and a half months, contains graphic information on six districts in Seoul.

    A ceremony to commemorate the publication of the Seoul edition of Cartoville, which doubled as a press briefing, was convened for journalists and officials from the tourism industry in Paris, France at noon on March 15.

    The book will officially go on sale at major bookstores in Europe, including France, and online book outlets worldwide, on March 17.

    Seoul City plans to push for the publication of Seoul tourism guidebooks in other languages, including Spanish, through discovery of new tourism guidebook series and continuous consultation with Gallimard, which has an extensive publishing network in the European region.

    In 2011, the Seoul edition of Rough Guide, the famous British tourism guidebook series (English version to be published in June 2011), and the Seoul edition of TimeOut (English and Chinese versions to be published November 2011) will also be published.
