Keep Calm And Carry On

I've been seeing this poster or artwork in a few design magazines and wondered what it meant.
I delved into it a little further to discover this simple-chic image actually represents an important and meaningful piece of history.

The poster was originally created in 1939 during the beginning of World War II for the purpose of a last case scenario to be used only should the Nazis succeed in invading Britain. It was never used, but reproduced in the 21st century.

I bought a small green version for our new bookshelf.
