Colors Notebook is a project launched in 2006 by Colors magazine in collaboration with Reporters Without Borders,

the association which sustains freedom of speech and defends journalists across the world.

Colors Notebook is a “special” issue of Colors; it contains 50 blank pages so whoever receives it can express himself with no filters or censure.

A number of personalized Colors Notebooks — all original and unique — were then chosen to become part of an itinerant exhibition

and of a two-volume book, Faces and Violence, published by Birkhäuser in spring 2008.
