1939, Britain. A country on the brink of war. Britain’s Ministry of Information (sounds very Orwellian doesn’t it?) decided to produce a series of propaganda posters to help maintain the resolve of the people should the Nazis invade England. But the posters were never officially used…
Decades later, one of these posters was discovered in a dusty old bookshop. A bold and fiery shade of red, it featured the crown of King George VI and the simple words “Keep Calm and Carry On”. In a new era and a new political climate, Britons realised that the words of advice were not only relevant to people during World War II…they resonated through the ages.
Whether you scribble your to-do list down or you’re writing a poem, these Keep Calm and Carry On Notebooks are a great way to remind yourself to keep a little perspective when things start to go awry.
So when you start to think, “Sod it! Why don’t we just pack it all in”, never fear. Just remember to keep calm, and carry on.
