D IS FOR DIGGING IT!
Book of the day and book launch tomorrow! > International Signal Code Alphabet by Corita Kent. Published by Atelier Éditions. Introduction by Dr. Ray Smith, foreword by Aaron Rose. "Radical American artist, educator, and once-devout Catholic nun, Sister Mary Corita Kent’s provocative imagery has entranced audiences for over four decades. Originally completed in 1968, Kent’s 'International Signal Code Alphabet' encompasses a series of twenty-six kaleidoscopic serigraphs integrating scripture, typography, image, icon, and the maritime flags of the International Code of Signals. It features an introduction by Corita Art Center Director Dr. Ray Smith along with a foreword by noted Kent scholar, artist, and curator Aaron Rose. As 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of both the series’ completion, and the centennial of Kent’s birth, this celebratory publication reproduces this engaging body of work for the very first time in a monographic, fine art format".
