CORITA, Sister. Footnotes and Headlines: A Play – Pray Book.
(New York, NY / Philadelphia, PA): Herder and Herder / United Church Press, 1967. First edition. Octavo. 50 pages. Foreword by Daniel Berrigan. Corita’s first book, a tableau of typographic experimentation combining brightly coloured type collages with Corita’s writing –‘prayers that read like a grocery list.’ The collages turn fragments of letterforms into backgrounds, on top of which advertising slogans in various configurations, sizes and typefaces are laid out. The volume explores and challenges the conventions of reading. A very good copy in dust jacket.
