A groovy rainbow wave suspended in the clouds plays host to elegant sailboats in this fun image created for the 1976 Summer Olympics.

The 1976 Summer Olympics were hosted by Montreal, Canada. Montreal is a harbor town along the St. Lawrence River and has an extremely active port. For access to better sailing conditions, the sailing event was held in Kingston, Ontario which is located on the bucolic freshwater Lake Ontario. The 1976 Olympics were the first Summer games held after the disastrous 1972 Munich Olympics, in which 17 people were killed in a terrorist attack that involved Palestinian, Israeli, and German deaths. The focus in Montreal was on a safe and secure event that also promoted the peaceful coexistence of the many cultures and religions present in the city.

Pierre-Yves Pelletier (1983 -) is a French Canadaian graphic designer who has worked extensively in Quebec, Canada. He is most known internationally for his designs for the 1976 Summer Olympics as its Director of Publications, and within Canada for designing over 100 stamps for the country's postal service.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
