The 'Keep Calm & Carry On' story


I'm a huge fan of the 'Keep Calm and Carry On' posters (plus many of the variations of the original) and of the simple motto itself. Recently I stumbled across a short film that tells the story behind the now-iconic poster an just had to share it.

Check out the film below for a little 'Keep Calm and Carry On' history lesson :
