History of Keep Calm and Carry On:
The Keep Calm and Carry On poster has a fascinating British history. In 1939, in anticipation of the Germans attacking England, the British Ministry of Information commissioned Keep Calm and Carry On posters to help the population deal with their fears. Although 2.5 Million Keep Calm and Carry On posters were printed, the Keep Calm and Carry On poster was never actually issued and only a handful of Keep Calm and Carry On posters ever went into circulation.
Things changed in 2000, when British booksellers unearthed an original Keep Calm and Carry On poster in a box of books. They started reproducing it and now the British canít seem to get enough of the Keep Calm and Carry On poster print.
A UK Guardian article on Keep Calm and Carry On reports that the prints can now be found everywhere, from homes to pubs to government offices. Recently, "The Lord Chamberlain's Office at Buckingham Palace, the prime minister's strategy unit at No 10, the Serious Fraud Office, the US embassy in Belgium, the vice chancellor of Cambridge University, the Emergency Planning Office at Nottingham council and the officers' mess in Basra, all have ordered the Keep Calm and Carry On posters."
The Keep Calm and Carry On phrase is quickly proving popular Stateside with its wisdom for all seasons and situations.
