Typefaces reminiscent of the swinging 1960s, the psychedelic era of hippies, bellbottoms, lava lamps, pop music, the Beatles, and free love.

Inspired by psychedelic lettering of the late 1960s, originally introduced by poster artist Wes Wilson. The letters in the upper and lower case character positions curve differently, and several special 'turn characters' can be used to link between them.

Based on the Viennese Secession poster lettering of the 1900s by Alfred Roller, which was rediscovered in the 1960s and widely used in hand-lettered psychedelic posters. The letters in the upper-case character positions have curly inside strokes, whereas those in the lower-case positions have straight inside strokes.
