These busts of Spirou and Fantasio appear on the cover of several albums of Spirou and Fantasio. In these hectic 70's, the ex-groom, long since reconverted into an adventurer-reporter, drops his old big-button livery in favor of a modern zip-up jacket and a tight white turtleneck sweater. With his meerschaum pipe, his fitted jacket and his bow tie, Fantasio continues to embody a certain classic vision of the journalist.
It was for the front pages of the Spirou albums. It was terribly enlarged and published in negative. That is to say in white on a blue background. At Dupuis, they composed their cover pages a little as they wanted. J.-C.F.
