6. Sartre à Barthes mais plus ça change
More of the same, but different, with cover art by James Lowe in 1975-84.Under Mike Dempsey's art direction the covers of the Fontana Modern Masters switched to a white background with cover art by James Lowe, a graduate of the Royal Academy Schools in London, whose geometric paintings and shaped
canvases had been exhibited in Young Contemporaries at the Tate Gallery in
1967 and several exhibitions at the Redfern Gallery, London, in 1967-70.
Lowe created three sets of cover art based on triangles, then squares, and finally circles under a new art director, Patrick Mortimer, following Dempsey's departure in 1979. The covers gave the books a fresh new look like a gallery, its walls repainted white and hung with shaped canvases.
