The Olympic Games

Those of you who have been following my blog for a few years, may have wondered why I did not run a special theme on Olympic Summer Games posters, like I have done for the Winter Olympics and the FIFA World Cup in 2010. Well, I considered it, but frankly the general level of the official posters was too uninspired to my taste (judge yourself). In fact, the best poster I found was an unofficial one for the 1952 Helsinki games, issued in the late forties. A beautiful piece of late Art Deco. Anyway, let the games begin!
