This is the first in a series of anachronistic science fiction designs I’ve envisioned. Imagine if science fiction characters produced or endorsed products but the ads/labels/etc were designed in the styles of the 1800s and 1900s. I call the series “Alt Future History”.
In this design, imagine if Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy from Star Trek TOS was an Old West huckster and was pushing his “magic cure all” in the 1800s. This would be the label on his Genuine Snake Oil Elixir.
Trust me…with all the screwing around with the timelines and how often the Temporal Prime Directive has been broken, these make sense in some universe out there. ;)
