Margaret Timmers was formerly senior curator of prints in the Word & Image Department of the V&A. She is the editor of Impressions of the Twentieth Century and Power of the Poster.

As snapshots through time, Olympic posters provide a fascinating record of our world, a lens through which we can explore links between sports and art, politics and place, commerce and culture. A Century of Olympic Posters draws largely on the superb poster collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum and shows the evolution of the Olympic Games poster, from the first official poster for Stockholm in 1912, right up to the present. This diverse collection of images includes official posters for the Summer and Winter Games set in their historic context, and linked to pervading themes such as politics, commerce, the Olympic symbols, cultural and physical diversity, and urban regeneration. This revised edition includes new material from the London 2012 Olympic Games.
