COLORS: A BOOK ABOUT A MAGAZINE ABOUT THE REST OF THE WORLD. Francesco Bonami. Damiani Editore, Bologna, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 240 pp. 34 x 24 cm. ISBN 9788862084246 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Colors explores the very best of more than 20 years of the influential magazine of the same name, a quarterly Italian publication "about the rest of the world." Founded in 1991 by photographer Oliviero Toscani and art director Tibor Kalman, each issue of Colors focuses on a single topic and follows it around the world, relying on images as heavily as text to tell stories. Some have called it the magazine of the MTV generation; Kalman himself described it as "a mix of National Geographic and Life on acid." In keeping with the structure of its unruly subject, the book treatment of Colors approaches its subject transversely, organizing content thematically to highlight the "Tumblr ante litteram" nature of the publication. Material is grouped under headings such as "That's Amore" (on physical and emotional love of all kinds), "Bang!" (on weapons, violence, lust and shock), "Elvis" (on fame, excess, degeneration, disguise and kitsch) and "I Want to Believe" (on faith, cult, and what we worship now).
