The complete set of vibrant postcards, produced as a collaboration between the artist Sister Corita Kent and poet Bernard Gunther. Kent created characterstically energetic and bold designs for Gunther's poetic aphorisms. Activist nun Sister Corita, was chair of the art department of Immaculate Heart College, but her anti-war and civil rights work led her to be forced from that position. She was a distinctive and popular artist who made important contributions to the artistic style of 1960s and 70s radicalism.
