Olympic Inspiration – Posters

29 Apr

Unlike books or paintings, posters have a unique talent of capturing the spirit that surrounds the pre-event hype. In a quirky combination of text, symbols and image, the posters are meant to idolize the matter so much so that a single glance will entice the viewer to follow.

This is why posters have always been an inspiration – unlike other mediums which loose the hightened ecstasy of expectation, posters always carry the spark. And these posters are no different – a rare collection of 1972 Munich Olympics posters uncovered by VintageSeekers.com :
