Hank Smith’s recent Letterform Archive blog post introduced our collection of counterculture and hippie newspapers from the 1960s and ’70s, a selection of which have been fully digitized and uploaded to the Online Archive. In this presentation, he will take a deeper dive into the individual newspapers and issues, exploring their psychedelic design and far-out articles, discussing how they were made, and digging up hidden gems from their pages. He may even give a live demo from his personal collection of Letraset sheets and IBM Selectric font elements.
