“Our best selling author and illustrator Badaude (of ‘London Walks’ fame) has collaborated wth Age of Reason Studios to produce an exquisite range of silk scarves featuring an exclusive new illustration. The design features a Union Jack blowing in the wind, while punk rock figures stand out from the bustling London crowd. Perfect for Jubillee street parties, Olympic celebrations, or simply for giving an every day outfit a luxurious edge.
This oversized silk chiffon version measures 140cm x 140cm and can be worn as a scarf or a wrap. Made in England.”
I meant to post this earlier, but kept forgetting. This is such a lovely short about the history behind the ubiquitous, but no less inspirational, “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster.
If you’re looking to own your own piece of calm, get the original reproductions (oxymoronic? Yes, but go with it) at Barter Books. I bought mine for less than $12, including conversion rates and shipping.
