Keep Calm and Carry On


I was interested by this article. The poster has been a fixture, and a talking point, in my office for a few years now. It never fails to intrigue the visitor. I saw it on a visit to Barter Books, and ordered it from them, before the avalanche of interest they report. What's the attraction? It's simple. And it's true.

I see writer Sebastian Faulks also has it on the wall of his writing room (http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2009/jan/17/sebastian-faulks-writers-rooms). Doesn't it originate from the war?

Yes- printed but never distributed by the ministry of information. The link to the BBC article has the details.
All the best writers have it...
