Julie Ault, ed.
Come Alive! The Spirited Art of Sister Corita
Admired by Charles and Ray Eames, Buckminster Fuller and Saul Bass,
Sister Corita Kent (1918-1986) was one of the most innovative and unusual
pop artists of the 1960's, battling the political and religious establishments,
revolutionizing graphic design and encouraging the creativity of thousands
of people—all while living and practicing as a Catholic nun in California.
Julie Ault’s lavishly illustrated book is the first to examine her
life and career, following her artistic and political development through
the 1960's and telling the story of her battles with—and departure
from—religious life. The book contains more than 90 illustrations,
many reproduced for the first time, capturing Corita’s use of eye-popping
and day-glo color.
Paperback, 128 pages, 11.25" x 9.75", full-color.
