Barter Books is one of the largest second hand and antiquarian bookshops in Britian. It is home to, among other things, a very special poster.

This is a short film about the history of the "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster. Though we will probably never know who the graphic artist was who was responsible for for its design, its is to his or her credit that long after the second world war, people everywhere recognise its simple and timeless design and still find reassurance in the very special 'attitude of mind' it conveys.
