  • Note: In 1953 Collins launched its Fontana Books series.[2] Later Fontana Books became a Collins imprint complete with its own series, including the Fontana Monarchs, the Fontana African Fiction series[3] and, from 1970, the Fontana Modern Masters,[4] a series of pocket guides to influential writers, philosophers and other thinkers and theorists of the twentieth century. Other William Collins Sons imprints included Fontana Lions and Fontana Young Lions, which published books for children and teenagers, and Grafton Books.[5] [...] News Corporation acquired a 40% stake in 1981. In 1983, Collins acquired the publishing operations of Granada. News Corporation became sole owner in 1989. In 1990, the company was merged with US publisher Harper & Row to form HarperCollins.[7] Collins became an imprint of HarperCollins. On 8 February 2013 it was announced that some parts of the Collins non-fiction imprint would be merged with the HarperPress imprint to form a new William Collins imprint.
