Description
Square format poster with black print on white ground designed for the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, Mexico. At center, stylized black typography spells: MEXICO68. From this central text, radiating black lines follow the curves and lines of the central letters, forming an op-art style bold graphic pattern that completely fills the composition. The lower circles of the numbers 6 and 8 form the two lower circles of the interlocking Olympic rings, shown in blue, black, red, yellow, and green.
