The Fool were a Dutch design collective and band who invented the psychedelic style of art in British popular music in the late 1960s. The colorful art draws on many fantastical and mystical themes. The name is a reference to The Fool tarot card.
The original members were Dutch artists Simon Posthuma and Marijke Koger, who were discovered by photographer Karl Ferris among the hippie community on the Spanish island of Ibiza in 1966. He took photographs of clothes designed by them, and sent them to London where they were published in The Times of London and immediately caused a sensation. The Fool's best known artworks are undoubtedly those they created for The Beatles in 1966-67.
