  1. Could you recommend a book on Corita Kent? I’m interested in an art book rather than a biography (though her life certainly was interesting).


    • Hi SC! Here are three suggestions: “Corita Kent and the Language of Pop,” published by Harvard Art Museums in 2015; “Someday Is Now: The Art of Corita Kent,” published by the Tang Museum in 2013; and the chapter about Corita in the book “Power Up: Female Pop Art,” published in 2010. 🙂
