The liberation of typographic letterforms: some seventy years after its creation, Viktoria (a.k.a. Phoenix, Medea) leaves the page and starts to fly. Thanks to the possibilities of photographic lenses, poster designer Günther Kieser could present the show’s lineup as if the multicolored words were projected onto the bodies of soul duo Sam & Dave, accompanied by a shower of stars.

Soul Time was jointly organized by Lippmann & Rau and the Youth Welfare Office of the City of Frankfurt. It took place on November 11, 1967, at Kongresshalle Frankfurt. In addition to Sam & Dave, the evening offered performances by Percy Sledge, Arthur Conley, Little Charles, Linda Carr, and Sam Baker.
