Andruskó, Károly (illus.)

Ljubljana, Yugoslavia: International Miniature Book Society, 1984. Four volumes, all unpaginated. Olimpia is one of 100 copies; the rest are one of 400 copies.

These were reissued in Olympia 1984, with the addition of short essays about the history of the Games and about Andruskó. The final two volumes concern posters advertising the Games, and stamps issued in conjuction with them; this final volume contains an actual stamp for the Sarajevo Olympics.
