    “Right On” in Stripes, with alternates used to make ligatures. Some of its eight lines were filled in as it was suggested by Letraset.

    From The Peculiar Manicule’s superb collection of mod miscellania: A sheet of six colorful stickers with popular 1960s/70s sayings like “Right on” and “Keep on truckin’”. The sheet is undated, but the inclusion of Stripes reveals it can’t be printed any earlier than 1973, when this typeface was first issued by Letraset.

    “Pow” is derived from  (Letraset, 1970). P and W are customized.

    1. WOW! RIGHT ON! LOVE IT!

      It amazes me how some of the uses of Stripes improve a lot by the correct use of the spacematic, the right alternates and the filling of spaces between lines.
