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.
