Synopsis

The quadrennial summer Olympic Games is the biggest festival of sport on the planet, creating instant heroes and gallant losers, to say nothing of iconic moments of triumph and glory. Published in association with the official Olympic Museum in Lausanne, a foundation of the International Olympic Committee, The Treasures of the Olympic Games brings to life, through more than 200 photographs and 20 removable artifacts, the glorious history of the summer Olympic Games illustrating the Olympic values that unite the world through sport every four years. Beginning in 776 BC in ancient Greece through to its revival in 1896 and the 24 subsequent modern games, this exceptional new title beautifully charts the event's absorbing and exemplary history and a wealth of world sporting achievement. A book of dreams, this is the first time that the Olympic Museum have co-operated in producing an interactive book containing facsimiles of rare historical documents from their exclusive archive, allowing readers to get closer to the world's greatest sporting spectacle than has ever been possible before.
