Keep Calm and Carry On

Gotta love the Brits. If they don't have humor, they have style, and on the rare occasion that they don't have either, at least they have something to say while they're taking a deep breath and counting their blessings. And wiping their feet.

The slogan "Keep Calm and Carry On" was coined in 1939 when the British Ministry of Information commissioned a series of propaganda posters from the King to his people. There were three such designs, and millions of the other two were distributed. This one, though, was held in reserve for the moment wartime crisis might hit especially hard, according to the UK's Barter Books.

It was never officially issued. Sometime around 1990 it re-emerged at an auction.

The 100% New Zealand wool rug, handmade in Uttar Pradesh, India, is now available at Pedlars Webstore.
