KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON - a meme 60 years in the making - the Awesome World of Things

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/4643306/Bookseller-discovers-rare-wartime-Keep-Calm-and-Carry-On-poster.htmlStuart Manley, who owns Barter Books in Alnwick, Northumberland, liked the red and white Second World War propaganda poster much that he framed it and hung it up in his shop. It is one of only two original prints known to have survived after the Government reconsidered releasing the poster and pulped the original print run.
To his astonishment, Mr Manley was inundated with customers desperate to have a copy or buy the original. He decided to make and sell a facsimile version and, since then, has sold over 40,000 copies alongside hundreds of mugs, T-shirts, mouse mats, tea towels and postcards. - The Telegraph
