    A set of Christmas cards published by Drawing Board Greeting Card in 1977, according to a Polish Star Wars fan website.

    Now I get why ITC Uptight Neon (1970) was picked. With its rounded biline strokes, it looks fairly futuristic. But Herkules? First issued in 1899, this old bottom-heavy fogey is not exactly what I’d associate with droids and lightsabers. It did see a revival in the 1970s.
