Abstract:

The peace sign is probably the most commonly used symbol of protest in the world. Instantly recognizable as the universal sign for peace, in 2008 it turned 50 years old. With accounts from around the world, this book tells the story of the enduring power of the line drawing that began life as the official sign for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). Tracing the roots of Gerald Holtom's design, it details the many ways the peace sign has been put to use, including politics, fashion, pop, film and marketing.
