keep calm and, you know, carry on

I've never been a big fan of those Keep Calm and Carry On posters. I'm even less a fan of the various iterations (Keep Calm and Buy Shoes? Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake?). However, I gained a new appreciation for the original World War II-era poster after watching this video. Did you know that the poster was discovered in 2000 by the owner of Barter Books? Which, by the way, is one on the list of the 20 most beautiful bookstores in the world...

Enjoy!
