Éditions Le Terrain Vague was a French publishing imprint founded in 1955 by Éric Losfeld. The publishing house (and shop?) was located at one time in rue de Verneuil, 14 - 16 Paris. It published the books of Benjamin Péret, Marcel Duchamp (Marchand du sel) and Boris Vian (Vercoquin et le plancton), erotic fiction such as Emmanuelle (1962), works on cinema and graphic novels.

According to Losfeld, André Breton came up with the name “Terrain Vague”.

Literally, terrain vague means a piece of land in a city with no construction on it, a fallow land, a wasteland (not built, not a farm, not a park).
