Another great poster from the ’72 games.  Anyone know the artist on this one?

This makes me really thirsty. I think Malibu could use some of that quenching power at the moment too (Navis here might be looking for a new job since it might be burned down).

What font is used for that? I particularly like the way 1972 looks.

I don’t think its Helvetica because this 9 is abit more pill shaped and the 2 goes straight down after the top curve and the 2 in Helvetica is abit more wavy in that area :)
