"The layout of this book has been ... inspired by rare manuscipts of ancient Hebrew traditional texts. The illustrtions are based on themes from paper-cuts made by Jewish folk artists ... These paper-cuts included a special category for the festival of Shavuot, which commemorates the receiving of the Torah with its mesage of universal peace. The word Peace throughout the text is in gold. The olive-green of the text and background recalls the olive leaf brought by the dove (Genesis 8:11) which has become a symbol of peace."--Verso, title page
"The Meaning of peace" (on unnumbered page 3) is from the address delivered by Menahem Begin, Prime Minister of Israel on the occasion of the award of the Nobel Prize for Peace in Oslo, December 10, 1978."
