Today is the 51st anniversary of the debut of the peace symbol. It was designed in 1958 by an artist named Gerald Holtom who purposely did not apply for a copyright because he wanted it to be freely used everywhere by everyone. He certainly got his wish: Half a century later, it is the most widely recognized symbol in the world.
The book in the photo is an advanced reader copy of a soon-to-be-released young adult novel called PEACE, LOVE AND BABY DUCKS by Lauren Myracle.
