DF Pigtail is the result of a curious marriage of the ‘free’-form of writing with the fixed (mono) space for each character of the typewriter typeface.
In the early sixties of the last century, typewriter typography became popular as a Fluxus vocabulary. The Fluxus art movement (in fact a Dada like follow up) which encouraged a do it yourself aesthetic, and valued simplicity over complexity and anti commercialism over the conventional market-driven approach.
