ABRAM GAMES (1914-1996) FLY BEA / OLYMPIC GAMES. 1948. 40x23 5/8 inches, 102x60 cm. [Baynard Press, London.] Condition B+: restoration and expert overpainting in corners. Although not an official Olympic poster, this image uses the London Olympic games as the selling point for travelling to Britain. Games' reputation as a graphic designer had grown during World War II, when one of his posters, the "Blonde Bombshell," was deemed too sexy and inappropriate an image for wartime, and by an act of Parliament was recalled and destroyed. Olympic Posters p. 58.
