About the book:
International Signal Code Alphabet by Corita Kent, produced in collaboration with the Corita Art Center, releasing June 1st 2018.
Radical American artist, educator and once-devout Catholic nun, Sister Mary Corita Kent’s provocative serigraphy has entranced audiences for over four decades. Originally completed in 1968, Kent’s 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 reproduces Kent’s International Signal Code Alphabet for the very first time in fine art monograph format.
An introduction is authored by Corita Art Center Director, Dr. Ray Smith, accompanied by a foreword authored by Kent scholar, artist & curator Aaron Rose
