Title

the sure one

Description

The composition is a horizontal rectangle that is almost square, in the lower portion of the rectangle is a band of pink color with the word "one" reversed out of it and with black text printed upside down and over the word "one." Above the pink block of color are the words "The" located in the upper left corner of the composition on top of the word "Sure" which is upside down. "The" and "Sure" fill the upper 2/3 of the composition. The phrase "For Help" is mostly printed in black with a bit of green on the "elp." "For Help" is positioned over "The" and "Sure." Underneath "For Help" and printed upside down and backwards is the phrase "Dial "O"." These words are also in black. The whole phrase, "For Help Dial "O"" fills the central section of the composition. In the lower section, overlaying the word "one" is the phrase "Anybody who thinks he can manage alone, he’s an idiot." The word "can" and part of the word manage are printed in a blue-gray ink instead of black.
inscribed: The / Sure / One / FOR HELP / DIAL "O" / Anybody who thinks he can / manage alone, he's an idiot.
signed: Sister Corita Kent
