Taking inspiration from the classic art-deco posters that used to advertise things like the Grand Prix in Monaco, one artist has created a host of images for a series of Star Wars trading cards that evoke a bygone era.

This set of cards for an upcoming Star Wars Galaxy card set isn't the first time commercial illustrator Russell Walks has turned his attention to George Lucas' universe.

But these vehicle-centric posters truly capture the spirit of "a long time ago," in more ways than one.
