A kaleidoscopic overview of the influential artist and art director, cataloging thirty years of his work and his quest through the world of imagery.
Beginning in the early 1980s, artist Gianluigi Colin began to delve into the daily newspapers to extract words, images, and signs that caught his attention. With an eye on the world around him, Colin assembled a complex, varied, and layered vision, documenting daily life as it unfolded and became history. The mission he has set for himself is to “clothe” the news headlines and events, while systematically devising his own newspaper, creating an ongoing dialogue with the international press. This visual autobiography reveals the artist’s evolving confrontation between the two worlds of imagery and words, while offering a visual account of the graphic projects that Colin realized through his role as art director for the leading newspaper Corriere della Sera.

This book is an authentic auteur publication, and offers an unstinting panorama of works focused on the news headlines to illustrate the complexities and the daily assault of the mass media

The book is also an example of graphic design, offering a visual account of projects Colin realized for the Corriere della Sera and describes the evolving graphics, composition, and visual models of this leading newspaper.

Gianluigi Colin is a multifaceted artist. During his years as art director of the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, he was also a lecturer and university professor, writing news items and essays on photography and on visual communication in general. He has exhibited around the world, and his artwork is in private collections, museums, and public institutions in Italy and abroad.
