    Addendum to the post about the first volume of Touchdown Illustrated from 1973.

    In 1977, the designers of Touchdown Publications still relied on catchy faces from Letraset’s range of rubdown type. For the cover announcing the 1977 edition of the Oregon rivalry game, they went with Vexier. This “impossible” design by Christof Gassner offered the possibility to embed the teams’ colors in the letterforms; green and yellow for the Ducks and orange with white for the Beavers.
