    Occupying a “magnificent old Victorian railway station”, in the heart of Northumberland, Barter Books has over 400,000 volumes on its shelves, and has been a focal point for artists, linguists and literature enthusiasts since 1991. In an age of aggressive high street sales techniques, combined with radical changes in the way people digest literature via electronic devices, Barter Books offers a haven from unabated 21st Century consumerism. The bookshop was opened in 1991, by Mary Manley and her husband Stewart, and was inspired by a summer Mary spent in an antiquarian bookshop in New York.

        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.
