Keep Calm and Race Pigeons Poster
11” x 17” Poster
Inspired by England’s wartime strength and Royal pigeon loft.
In honor of his work with the Royal Loft and the history of British Royal pigeons in WW2, Jim Jenner chose this design element for the packaging and souvenir poster of his film "The Queen's Wings".
According to Wikipedia: Keep Calm and Carry On was a motivational poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of the Second World War, intended to raise the morale of the British public in the aftermath of widely predicted mass air attacks on major cities. It had only limited distribution with no public display, and thus was little known. The poster was rediscovered in 2000, has been re-issued by a number of private companies, and has been used as the decorative theme for a range of products. It was believed there were only two known surviving examples of the poster outside government archives until a collection of 15 originals was brought in to the Antiques Roadshow in 2012 by the daughter of an ex-Royal Observer Corps member.
