The Story of Keep Calm and Carry On

I came across a wonderful video of the story behind the Keep Calm and Carry On posters and wanted to share. I have one pinned to my cork board at work, as a personal reminder to not sweat the small stuff and to keep plugging away. Along the way somewhere, I had picked up the fact that the British government posted them to keep citizens of London calm when the bombings were happening, but some of my facts were mixed up. I had no clue about Barter Books and how the artwork was never actually distributed. This video is so lovely, and simply makes me smile.
