Art attack: Here's the 12 London 2012 Olympics posters

The likes of Tracey Emin have been moved to produce these striking posters ahead of next summer’s games. What do you think?

THE 2012 LONDON Olympics are less than a year away.

And Games officials have unveiled the 12 posters that will be sold to commemorate both the Olympics and the Paralympics next summer.

Some are weird, some are abstract, some are playful.

You wouldn’t know most of them were Olympics posters unless someone told you.

Are they beautiful? Okay? Or too high-brow?
