XXth Olympiade 1972 Bid Book

This Bid Book for the XXth Olympiade in 1972 features a photograph depicting Montreal as a bustling metropolis, starkly contrasted by the regal styling of the typography which says “Montréal Invites and is Ready”. For those who attended elementary school in Canada, the layout and design of this cover closely resembles the Royal portrait seen at the front entrance of public schools throughout the country.
