Speaking of Olympics…

“Throughout the course of the 2012 Olympic fortnight, an alternative programme of events will be taking place in offices and homes across London.

“While these events enjoy no official status, they represent some of the most popular participation sports in the UK.

“This blog is an attempt to recognise and honour these under-appreciated events through a system of practical iconography.”
