Some of Britain’s top artists, including Tracey Emin and Bridget Riley, have produced posters for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The posters will be displayed in a free exhibition at Tate Britain next summer. If you don’t want to wait until then, you can buy your own copies for £7 each from today.

    I think these are incredible. The Howard Hodgkin one is my favourite, closely followed by Anthea Hamilton’s. One will definitely be gracing my sitting room wall before too long!

  2. To be honest I’m not that keen on a few of them – particularly the stopwatch… but then I’ve never been much of a fan of the design ideas around the London 2012 Olympics anyway.

    I like the Rachel Whiteread one – wonder if the 2012 shop could produce it as Olympic wrapping paper? Also like Bob and Roberta Smith’s Love poster.

  4. I have to agree with The Londoneer, I’m not sure if I like the design ideas around the 2012 Olympics, but they’re definitely interesting.
