Shalom. Salaam. Pax. Pace. Peace. Or for geeks, ☮

Peace Symbol Book by Ken KolsbunWhatever 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

Peace: The Biography of a Symbol is available at Amazon. [via mod•mom]
