Mexican Menu Galaxy

By the time I got to the third series of menu boards, I had some fancy graphic design production values. This "Galaxy" had a nice Art Nouveau typeface and a mainly black-and-white color scheme. The color of the writing was originally white, with some color blends to the left, and the words "Galaxy Dinner Special" and "Nacho" done in metallic silver. The numbers were red or yellow, now faded. I left some of the color artifacts of fading in the writing. I had to simulate the silver with Photoshop as it didn't show up in the image. Despite the failings of the photograph this is one of my favorites among my Mexican menu boards.

The usual with silver metallic pen accents, winter 1980.
