Notes to editors
"Keep Calm and Carry On" was a poster produced during the Second World War, intended to keep up the morale of the British people in the event of invasion. The final poster in a series of three, it was widely printed but never distributed and was therefore believed to be lost until a copy was found by Stuart and Mary Manley of Barter Books in Northumberland in 2000. Since they started reprinting copies of the original poster its popularity has spread worldwide, with copies now adorning the walls of Downing Street, Buckingham Palace and the US Embassy in Belgium.
