Abstract:

"From ancient Greece to the present day, the Games have always been about beauty, strength, and sharing. In the spirit of the Olympics, Assouline has created this limited edition publication, which is truly a work of art that pays tribute to the Olympic Games, as the games finally return to their city of origin in 2004. With powerful black and white photographs, this luxury set recreates the emotion and atmosphere of the Olympics, where athletes are worshiped, and their gestures develop a timeless aestheticism. Encased in a slipcase, the hardcover volume contains a dozen 8 page sections filled with sublime and often never before published photographs showing both ancient Greek architecture and the best sportsmen of all times"--Publisher's web site.
