So, we’re at a full circle. In 2009, I was quoted in the Daily Express (drawing from my PhD thesis) about Keep Calm and Carry On, which only a couple of days before a friend had alerted me was making waves. I thought this was highly amusing, as the poster had not been used in the Second World War, although the other two posters in the series had, and I’d written about them extensively in my 1997 undergraduate thesis, and my 2004 PhD thesis!

On 26th October 2017, I have a book coming out with the Imperial War Museum, entitled Keep Calm and Carry On: The Truth About the Poster, and this has been covered today in the Daily Express in a full page article (although you can also read it online, or as a PDF):

A whole page in the Daily Express, re my new book on #keepcalm
