Paris 1924

1924 Olympic poster

In just eight years host cities had seriously begun to own the Games

The Olympic rings, although designed by this point, are still nowhere to be seen. This poster, designed by Jean Droit, looks more like an advert for French nationalism than a promotional piece for the Olympic Games. Having said this, the design is exceptionally striking, with the semi-naked ahtletes representing Antiquity.
