This article pleads for an approach to Grail literature that takes into account the practices of the publishing profession. The analysis follows the evolution of the presentation texts from the manuscript to the digital, and uses as a case study the Tale of the Grail by Chrétien de Troyes. The study reveals that the examples of promotional texts found in different book formats - despite their differences in form, authorship or location - ultimately have similar goals and motivations.
