Keep Calm and Carry On
The story behind the now ubiquitous Keep Calm and Carry On posters from Barter Books.
Barter Books is one of the largest second hand and antiquarian bookshops in Britian. It is home to, among other things, a very special poster. This is a short film about the history of the "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster. Though we will probably never know who the graphic artist was who was responsible for its design, its is to his or her credit that long after the second world war, people everywhere recognise its simple and timeless design and still find reassurance in the very special 'attitude of mind' it conveys.
