Corita Rules!

Washington DC: Abstract Orange Press, 2022. One of 45 copies. Corita Rules! is inspired by the work and rules of Corita Kent. Corita Kent (1918–1986) was an artist, educator, and advocate for social justice. She created many pieces using bright colors and typography. One of her works entitled “Power up” was a multi-section serigraph featuring the words “Power Up”. This book, that pays homage to Kent's use of color and typography, is an accordion using different color papers bound together to repeat her message of “Power up” — a call to action. The other words in this piece come from the “Ten Rules”, which was a collections of rules she used in her classroom. The book is letterpress printed using handcut wooden type. In Sister Corita’s practice, she did not number her pieces. This was a choice she made so that no one piece would be more valuable than the others. Following her tradition for this piece, the books are not numbered. In fine condition. Measures 5 x 7 inches. Unpaginated. PRI/032822. Fine.
