The Olympic Games Book - Stamp Booklet
The Olympic Games Book - Stamp Booklet for only GBP £30.90
The Olympic Games are a world patrimony and a factor of communication and interchanging between peoples world-wide. In 1996 we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the modern Olympism with the realisation of its 26th edition in Atlanta, in the United States.
While a universal institution aiming at the reduction of distances and at the approach of organisations and people, as well as at the development of societies, CTT Correios de Portugal could not remain apart from this event. Thus they decided to commemorate it with the issue of stamps and the edition of this book.
As no historical and documented work about the Olympism in Portuguese had been done until now we tried to put together the words of the expert, the documented image, and the stamps concerning the theme. This was done in order to interest the public at large which appreciates sport in its multiple form of expression.
