Seix Barral (1911 – present) is a Barcelon-based publisher that has long been among the most prominent Spanish-language publishers in the world. Founded as a graphic arts company, it soon moved into publishing and was an early proponent of postwar Latin American poets and authors writing in Spanish, publishing works by Jorge Luis Borges, Pablo Neruda, and Octavio Paz, among others. In 1982, Seix Barral became a part of Grupo Planeta but maintains its name and distinct identity.
