MARSHALL, Jim. Peace.

(London): Reel Art Press, 2017. First edition. Octavo. 128 pages. Foreword by Shepard Fairey. Afterword by Joan Baez. A collection of the photographer’s previously unseen “peace” photographs, taken mainly between 1961 and 1968. Photographing across America, Marshall charted the life of a symbol, documenting how the peace sign went from holding a specific anti-nuclear meaning to serving as a broad, internationally recognized symbol for peace. Marshall captured street graffiti in the New York subway, buttons pinned to hippies and students, and West Coast peace rallies held by a generation who believed, for a brief moment, they could make a difference. A near fine copy in photo-illustrated boards without dust jacket as issued.
