Here's a decent little poster for an EP-release party for Bullet Club. The texture, typeface, size, and symmetry all evoke a Western letterpress style, but some of the fonts are clean and modern, which undermines the old-timey look. Avoid typographical anachronisms when aiming for a certain era. Keeping your typefaces in the same time frame is a safe way to create a specific look, especially the Western and wood-block styles. Also, for a letterpress look, a little dirt and degradation go a long way. CORIANTON HALE
