‘Back Cover’ returns with its first issue since 2013. This time, in different forms and with a certain degree of eclecticism, it sets out to discover French design. Editor Alexandre Dimos proclaims this to be a subject the magazine has “failed to examine sufficiently in the past”, a response to past criticism from British writer on design, Rick Poynor. Included are features on Benoît Bonnemaison-Fitte, Yorgo Tloupas, Matthieu Cortat, Otl Aicher, and Claude Closky, plus a variety of other contributions: Gilles Rouffineau writes about “Reading Barthes (typo)graphically”, Helmut Völter revives Masanao Abe’s vision of Mt. Fuji, Étienne Greib looks back at K Records, and much more.
