Since its discovery in 2000, the Keep Calm and Carry on poster has become increasingly popular. The poster completely sums up a modern approach on daily life. In recent years, the poster has been twisted changing both the colour and the words, making parodies on the original.
In the spring of 1939, war against Germany was inevitable and hence, a number of motivational propaganda posters were to be distributed around the country. The Keep Calm and Carry On poster was one in a collection of three and was printed in its millions to help strengthen morale. Despite its original intent, the poster was distributed to a limited group of people and as a result, remained relatively unknown to the general public.
In 2000, the poster was rediscovered by shop owners, Stuart and Mary Manley who hung the original poster in their shop. The simple five word message became popular and so they decided to make reprints of the poster to sell.
Now, the poster which epitomises the model of the British way is a well acknowledged piece of art which is recognised by the public. Photo in Canvas has taken the popular motif and made it completely unique by changing the words and making it available in a variety of colours making it more versatile.
