To find out more about Barter Books visit to download the ‘Keep Calm’ iphone app visit

A short film that tells the story behind the ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ poster. Its origins at the beginning of WWII and its rediscovery in a bookshop in England in 2000, becoming one of the iconic images of the 21st century. Film, music, script and narration by Temujin Doran.

Honestly had no idea that this was where it came from and had only just been re-discovered recently, I thought it was some strange obsession with it randomly, this makes more sense now and I see why it became so popular, it’s a shame it wasn’t used in the war, they might have enjoyed it as much as people are now, but I doubt it would have been so popular now if it was used back then.
