Illustrator: Sister Corita Kent

Epistles/Now
by Leslie F. Brandt & Sister Corita Kent.
Concordia Press, 1974/76
5.5" x 8.25"
135 pages

A gorgeously illustrated volume, with cover, jacket, and several full-color full-spread illustrations by famous Pop artist Sister Corita Kent. Corita's fusion of Abstract Expressionist and Pop Art styles perfectly exemplifies her spirituality, her commitment to social justice, her hope for peace, and her delight in the world that takes place all around us. A beautiful example with only minor shelf wear. No dust jacket. Clean interior.

About Sister Corita Kent:
At the age of eighteen, Francis Elisabeth Kent (1918-1986) joined the Roman Catholic order of Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Los Angeles and became who we now know as Corita Kent. Most popularly known simply as "Sister Corita," Kent studied art history at the University of Southern California, and went on to chair the art department at the Immaculate Heart College where she taught. Devoting all of her time to her art, she dedicated her work to promoting a message of love and peace. Sister Corita's work consists almost exclusively of serigraphs (screen prints) with brightly colored pop imagery most often combined with a quote or text speaking about love, peace, freedom, and justice.

In 1968 she left monastic life and moved to Boston, where she continued her creative activities and goals of social justice. Some of this work was commissioned by commercial and non-profit corporations for advertisements, but all of it centered on the themes she had always espoused.
