COLORS is a quarterly magazine about "the rest of the world" based in Treviso, Italy. Founded in 1991, it is published worldwide in five editions: Chinese/English, French/English, Italian/English, Korean/English and Spanish/English. Every issue of the magazine takes a single theme and covers it from an international perspective.
To find our bearings, COLORS has gone to market: from the Alaba used-electronics market in Nigeria to the marriage market in People's Square, Shanghai; from Tirumala Temple’s hair auction in India to a bank that uses cheese as collateral for cash in northern Italy. COLORS 85 - Going to Market is a journey through weights and scales, coins, customers, products and merchants, in pursuit of the invisible thread that links Wall Street to Main Street in one chaotic, irresistible global market.
