Keep Calm…

We’ve all seen the original “Keep Calm and Carry” on poster. Did you know that it was originally created by the UK Ministry of Information during World War II to boost the morale of the British people, but was never distributed? In fact, it’s rumored that all but two of the 2 million posters were destroyed after the war. Luckily for us, one of the surviving copies showed up in a bookstore in northern England called Barter Books. The owners found it in an old box, framed it in their store, and the rest is history!

PicCollagers love to play with the “Keep Calm” format and make it their own. Here are a few of our favorite Keep Calm collages…
