Olympex 2012: Collecting The Olympic GamesPresented by The British Library and The International Olympic Committee, Olympex 2012 is a large-scale display featuring postage stamps, letters, postcards, maps and programmes offering insights from the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, through to the present day and London 2012. With items mostly drawn from private collections, the display includes some 2,500 stamps and postal items, each telling a story. It's fascinating to see who sent these letters and cards, and who they were sent to, as you discover a very personal take on significant historical events. You can also get your photograph taken with an Olympic Torch (11am-3pm, during the Games only).

 

About British Library

With over 150 million items, a copy of every publication produced in the UK and Ireland, artwork by artists such as Antony Gormley and Eduardo Paolozzi, and a host of historically momentous works - including the Magna Carta, the Gutenberg Bible, Shakespeare's First Folio and the Lindisfarne Gospels - a guided tour around the British Library is the best way to take it all in.
