Tax included.

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). 

An attempt to tell the story of Colors in its own words—and make work carried out in the past speak to the present day—this volume recombines text and images from different issues, pulled from the entire 25-year history of the magazine. With a foreword by Francesco Bonami, this volume is a fitting representation of the antic and intelligent spirit that defines the magazine.
