A Century of Olympic Posters Book


As we all watch the Olympic athletes take their talent to the worldwide stage less than two months from now at the 2008 Summer Games, graphic design aficionados will be watching another kind of talent on display: the posters. Throughout the history of the games, the posters have provided a unique visual record, evoking everything from time, geography, style and sometime politics.


In conjunction with the book, at London's Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood, you can see the Museum's collection of posters as well as various ephemera from the games. A selection of posters has also been made available for purchase at the V&A shop.
