The Original Keep Calm & Carry On

Anyone who has been in my library or on my blog knows that I love this poster:
I've always known part of the story and history behind this poster, but thanks to The Laughing Squid, I came across this video and now I... and you... know the entire story. Very. Cool. Barter Books, home of Keep Calm & Carry On.


  1. Wow!!! I never know that was where keep calm and carry on came from!


  2. Thanks Kelly! I thought this was very interesting-- passed the link on to our school secretary that has this poster at her desk:) Your posts so often make me smile.
