This online exhibition of Olympic Posters took our breath away. Doesn't each poster perfectly capture its era? And what a great way to get a sense of trends in graphic design — so much changes in four years! And not that you needed more ebay search terms, but wouldn't it be awesome to have one of these.

Nick from A Time to Get, who clued us into this exhibition, actually scored an original 1968 poster on ebay! So there is hope! Do you have a favorite Olympic year?

You can see the full run of Olympic Posters, from 1896 to the present, from the online exhibition, The Olymperials.
