"Le Minotaure", so indicated the Maurice Henry-designed logo, was a bookstore specialized in surrealism, le fantastique, humor, pataphysiques, poetry, cinema, the arts....

It was first and foremost a meeting place where French intellectuals and bibliophiles chatted about rare books and hard-to-find periodicals concerned with the mentioned subjects. From there, ideas were launched which ended up as new projects such as periodicals. Sometimes Cornaille would fund these (like Bizarre or La Flibustière for example).
