Details:

Heads: A Biography of Psychedelic America uncovers a hidden history of the biggest psychedelic distribution and belief system the world has ever known. Through a collection of fast-paced interlocking narratives, it animates the tale of an alternate America and its wide-eyed citizens: the LSD-slinging graffiti writers of Central Park, the Dead-loving AI scientists of Stanford, utopian Whole Earth homesteaders, black market chemists, government-wanted Anonymous hackers, rogue explorers, East Village bluegrass pickers, spiritual seekers, Internet pioneers, entrepreneurs, pranksters, pioneering DJs, and a nation of Deadheads.

WFMU DJ and veteran music writer Jesse Jarnow draws on extensive new firsthand accounts from many never-before-interviewed subjects and a wealth of deep archival research to create a comic-book-colored and panoramic American landscape, taking readers for a guided tour of the hippie highway filled with lit-up explorers, peak trips, big busts, and scenic vistas, from Vermont to the Pacific Northwest, from the old world head capitals of San Francisco and New York to the geodesic dome-dotted valleys of Colorado and New Mexico. And with the psychedelic research moving into the mainstream for the first time in decades, Heads also recounts the story of the quiet entheogenic revolution that for years has been brewing resiliently in the Dead's Technicolor shadow.

Featuring over four dozen images, many never before seen-including pop artist Keith Haring's first publicly sold work-Heads weaves on of the 20th and 21st centuries' most misunderstood subcultures into the fabric of the nation's history. Written for anyone who wondered what happened to the heads after the Acid Tests, through the '70s, during the Drug War, and on to the psychedelic present, Heads collects the essential history of how LSD, Deadheads, tie-dye, and the occasional bad trip have become familiar features of the American experience.

What fabric do you print on?

All of our baby one pieces are printed on 100% fine jersey cotton. All of our t-shirts are printed on 100% cotton soft jersey knits. See individual product descriptions for more details. We strive to always use top quality materials. Whenever possible, we also try to utilize items constructed here in the USA. 

Why do I see items on your shop that are not available?

We like to keep things fresh! We are constantly rotating our styles and creating new art for designs. There is an option to receive email notifications when those items do get restocked. We listen to what our customers have to say, and if enough of you say you want a certain product back, we will do our best to make that happen!!

What is a pre-order?

Sometimes we will make certain products available at a discount while they are still in production. As soon as those products are completed, we immediately ship them out to the customers that "pre-ordered" those items. Pre-orders help us to keep new product always in production, and they are a way of letting our fans in on some great deals. 

I see you offer a lot of deals but not the deal I'm looking for...

We always do our best to keep our Little Hippies happy! If there is a promotion you see available on our site that isn't exactly what you are looking for, just contact us and we will do our best to work something out for you. 

Where do i enter my promo/discount code?

There is a "Discount" box on the checkout page to enter those codes. They do not compute if you put them in the "order notes" section.

Can I use two promo codes on one order?

No, only one promo code can be used per order. But feel free to come back another time and use your other discount for more goodies!

I forgot to enter my promo code and I have already checked out. Can I get that discount refunded?

This situation is dealt with on a case-by-case basis. If there was a problem at checkout that can be recreated/an error on our part, we will absolutely refund that to you. If you simply "forgot" to use it, weeellllll, email us and we will let you know. 

How can I get promo codes, discounts, etc?

Sign up for our newsletter to get lots of great deals, find out about new products and designs, and be part of our growing Little Hippie family!
