Radical American artist, educator and Catholic nun, Corita Kent's (1918-86) provocative and elaborate serigraphy has entranced audiences for over four decades. Originally completed in 1968, Kent's "International Signal Code Alphabet" encompasses a series of 26 kaleidoscopic serigraphs integrating scripture, typography, image, icon and the maritime flags of the International Code of Signals.As 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of both the series' completion and the centennial of Kent's birth, this celebratory publication, produced in collaboration with the Corita Art Center, reproduces for the first time the "International Signal Code Alphabet" in this handsome and eye-grabbing yellow clothbound volume.An informative introduction written by Corita Art Center Director, Ray Smith, and foreword authored by artist and curator Aaron Rose accompanies the serigraphs.
