“Published in 1970, Our Time is a collection of writings from high school student published underground newspapers from the late sixties.” — Anthony Buccino
“There were a bunch of these high school underground free press digests published in the ’70s ✊ My high school didn’t have a newspaper so we made zines 👊” —Sean Flannagan
The fonts on this paperback cover of Our Time is Now were very fresh at the time, released within a few months of this Bantam edition. The title type epitomizes the Burko / Bauhaus / Blippo style that really took off in the early 1970s, but this particular typeface is much heavier than most, with a deep shadow. The name is Papirtis Pink Mouse by Charles Papirtis, first shown by Photo-Lettering, Inc. in their 1970 catalog, Art Deco. (Unfortunately, the ‘N’ is cruelly stretched to get some extra height.) The small type is Bauhaus Geometric, precursor to the much more common ITC Bauhaus.
