About the book:
International Signal Code Alphabet by Corita Kent was produced in collaboration with the Corita Art Center.
Radical American artist, educator and once-devout Catholic nun, 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, the celebratory publication reproduces for the first time, Kent’s International Signal Code Alphabet within fine art monograph format.
An introduction is authored by Corita Art Center Director, Dr. Ray Smith, accompanied by a foreword authored by artist & curator Aaron Rose.
