The Olympic Posters visually carry the identity of each Olympic Games edition and make it recognizable to the world. After the huge success of the first editions of the modern Olympic Games, Olympic organizers decided to create official posters for each edition, both to promote the Games, as well as to keep them vivid in the memory of people all over the world. The first official poster wasn't created until 1912, when the Games took place in Sweden. The images of t the first four editions -in Athens, Paris, St. Louis, and London- are the covers of the official Olympic programme or the concluding report.
Since the 1912 Games, the host country has designed and presented a poster to represent each edition. When seen together, these Summer Olympic posters allow us to time-travel through 120 years of not only Olympic but also world history and to discover the diversity of spirit and culture that is at the heart of the Games. ​
