The famed 1939 poster with the phrase, “Keep Calm and Carry On” has quite an interesting story behind it. Using only 2 colors, King George’s crown, and a ‘special and handsome’ typeface, the British government commissioned three propaganda posters to reassure the public in the dark days ahead; in war with Germany. Watch the video and find out the role a little book shop in Alnwick, Northumberland played in this poster’s rediscovery.
