They’ve got game

The posters for the 2012 London Olympics have just been released. Organisers had spread the load and got 12 artists to do posters around the theme of the Games (what a pack of wimps, we would have commissioned Dick Frizzell to do the lot). Anyway, things have sure changed in the London Olympic Poster game as you can see.

And, along with his poster, there'll be a huge bonus on the first day of the Games when Martin Creed's work no. 1197 will be performed: bells all around the UK will be rung as quickly and as loudly as possible for three minutes.
