Whatever you think of the peace symbol–inspiring, cheesy, ubiquitous–you have to admit the history is pretty incredible. Or if you’re not sure that it’s pretty incredible, check out Peace: The Biography of a Symbol, peace activist Ken Kolsbun’s brand new tome which is deserving of a nice spot right at the center of the coffee table.
The book uses words, artwork and stunning photos to tell the story of the symbol that launched a movement, defined a generation, and now looks cute on pendants, baby hats and backpacks everywhere.
Give it a chance. As a wise man once said. -Liz
