One Peace Books

One Peace Books was founded in 2006 to translate and publish Japanese entertainment and literature for a North American audience. As the brainchild of successful Japanese publisher Sanctuary Books, One Peace Books occupies a unique place in the publishing industry—able to fully leverage the connections and industry knowledge to publish Japanese literature in translation. As One Peace Books has grown, we’ve utilized those connections and passions to expand our publishing model to include original publications by other artists and writers as well. It is our hope in this way to act as a bridge between cultures. Publishing both Japanese translations and original publications is, in our own small way, an attempt to show that it truly is not language or borders that divide us. As our catalog of North American titles expands, our relationship with our Japanese founders will allow the door to swing both ways by introducing our original North American publications back into Asia—our own small contribution to a more interconnected world built on mutual respect. We believe that art and entertainment is an infectious, necessary, endlessly enjoyable way to bring diverse sets of people together to share in a singular cause or emotion.

Her first performances in the night clubs of prohibitionist America was where her pioneering vocal style was born—later to become a lasting influence on jazz, pop, and modern music to this day.
Performing with jazz legends such as Lester Young, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, and Artie Shaw, she became a true American icon. This graphic novel, told through short biographical fragments, is the story of Lady Day.
