Roaming Publication: Paul Goodrich and Andrew Jensen

Curator: Placement
date: April 1, 2014
Categories: Book Design, Editorial Design, Typographic Design

I’ve recently become fascinated by the raw and fearless work of Sister Corita Kent. Perhaps it’s the residual influence of ten long years of Catholic school, or the fact that my father’s only sister possessed an eerily similar tension—a Catholic nun who was one of the most fiercely independent and liberal women I’ve ever known.
