Under orders from the Montréal organizing commitee (Le Comitee Organisateur des Jeux Olympiques je 1976, known as COJO 76) the Graphics and Design Directorate designed dozens of official posters and lithographs, defining the image of the ’76 games. This poster is from the first series, which illustrated eight ‘themes’, including Flag, Mascot, Olympic Flame, International Youth Camp, Kingston ’76 (Paralympics), Olympia and Montréal, and Olympic Stadium. Invitation, depicts the Olympic rings moving together from every direction, symbolically “inviting athletes from all continents to the 1976 Olympic Games”.
