Olympics Poster









Enjoying the Games of the XXIX Olympiad in Beijing? The first poster to announce the games using the term "Olympiad" was this one, advertising the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. In the lower right of the poster is the slogan, "Call to the Games of the Xth Olympiad." This one sold for $60 at a recent auction.
