V-J Day "The Kiss" Bookmark


When U.S. President Harry Truman declared the end of the war with Japan on August 14, 1945, there were spontaneous acts of joy throughout the United States. In Times Square, a sailor grabbed a nurse and gave her a big kiss. Captured on film by both u.s. navy photojournalists Victor Jorgensen and Alfred Eisenstaedt is the inspiration for this bookmark. The bookmark is finished in solid brass, electro-plated with a non-tarnishing silver finish, and a Giclee print. Bookmark dimensions: approx. 1.75-inch width x 3.75-inch length packaged in an acetate sleeve with a provenance card.
