Original air-drop card for Orange Sunshine LSD

[No Place]: [The Brotherhood of Eternal Love], [1968].

Original multi-colored butterfly-shaped card for distributing Orange Sunshine-brand LSD, verso featuring an illustration of stars in the cosmos. 19.5x13 cm (8" x 6"). Fine; unused and never folded.

The circular hole punched through the middle of the card was to accommodate a tab of acid. The butterfly would then be dropped from an airplane over a music festival crowd like samizdat leaflets. The Brotherhood of Eternal Love believed in creating a better world through LSD, and their first action was to anonymously distribute through the hippie underground many thousands of free doses of LSD. This air-drop card is their most ingenious idea for printed distribution devices. A true rarity from the heart of the Psychedelic Revolution.

Orange Sunshine was arguably the most highly-regarded, widely-distributed, and purest LSD of the sixties, created by chemists Nick Sand and Tim Scully. After Timothy Leary's death this card was found at his ranch in Garner Valley which served as home for a group of Brotherhood members and the base of operations for LSD manufacturing.
