Anyone got pics of the 1992 Barcelona bid book?

As in what the cover/slipcase (if it had a slipcase) looked like

Download the Barcelona 1992 bid report from LA84's foundation page. It has the "magic box" bid document files which were submitted to the IOC. I'm sure the same bid files were done without that elaborate box as well.

Dear GamesBids-Community,

I am searching for a mini bid-book as pdf file - the newer the better! London 2012 or Rio 2016 would be great!

In addition to this I am really interested what kind of agencies, consultants and engineers are usually involved in "writing" a mini bid-book or a bid-book. Are there some "global players" who are engaged again and again? Can anyone name some companies?

Thanks in advance,

Arne

It's a shame that Manchester made their Commonwealth Games a lesser event. Yes it is indeed a lesser event, but they went for grandeur and epicness in their 2 Olympic bid attempts. Seems like the Commonwealth Games in 2002 were quite a lesser consolation prize.
