Keep Calm and Carry On

It started as a slogan in 1939, on the eve of World War 2, a message from the British Ministry of Information, from King George VI to his people "that all capable measures to defend the Country were being taken". The poster was never officially issued and turned up 50 years later in a pile of library books. Now an English designer has made it into a tea towel and a great looking tee-shirt. With its simple graphics, using the crown of King George and calming words, it is a cool and relevant summer statement.

It's made in a sweat shop free environment, with good working conditions and environmentally friendly production. The red is the classic, since it is the same colour as the original poster. When this run is finished, there will be no more, instead something new will be created. :: Keep Calm and Carry On Via :: psfk
