Sister Corita

Saturday, 21 September 2013

As I mentioned in the previous post, I went to the Victoria College annual book sale in Toronto yesterday evening and found a treasure!

It's a book on Sister Corita, Corita Kent, the 20th century artist, who worked mainly with silkscreening. I've been intending to get more familiar with her work and this is a great opportunity to do so. The book was published by Pilgrim Press in 1968 and contains over 30 posters! Here are some photos, I hope you fall in love with them, like I did. I have a feeling that once I'm done with the book it will go to my shop.




Inside of the book clamshell cover: 







This is the large poster that comes with the book, it's an e.e. cummings quote. Here's the full quote:

"Damn everything but the circus! ...damn everything that is grim, dull, motionless, unrisking, inward turning, damn everything that won't get into the circle, that won't enjoy. That won't throw it's heart into the tension, surprise, fear and delight of the circus, the round world, the full existence...”
