The ancient tradition of Tarot dates back to 15th century Italy, when the 22 Major Arcana cards, originally intended for card games, began to be used for divination.
The timeless magic of Lisa Frank got its start a bit later, in 1979, in the lovely city of Tucson, Arizona, when a brilliant designer revealed that a rainbow-infused image of a koala bear shooting through outer space eating ice cream also exhibited divine aspects.
Today, artist and social media maven Ariel Hart is turning the Internet into one giant, amorphous, screaming tween girl today with the glorious creation that is her Lisa Frank Tarot Deck. Inspired by the Hello Kitty exhibit at the Japanese American Nation Museum in Los Angeles, Hart brought back all of your favorite childhood Lisa Frank characters -- the flirty puppies, the showbiz bear, the coy cheetah -- to help read your energies and determine your fate.
In Hart's enchanted deck, the Devil card -- representing material wealth and excessive luxury -- is adorned with a saucy banana in cat-eye shades and a leopard print shawl strutting down the beach with her friend, a pineapple. The Empress -- embodying subconscious, feminine knowledge -- takes the shape of a Princess kitty dripping with jewels and a shield with the female sign.
If you had to get the Death card in a reading, it sure lessens the blow if there's a white unicorn delivering the news.
Hart was inspired by Lisa Frank's mind-blowing ability to turn a brand into an inspired way of being, that looks like it will, in all likelihood, outlive us all. "I'm especially passionate about branding as it transitions into being a lifestyle," Hart explained in an email to The Huffington Post. "Lisa Frank is a great example of a brand that was likely intended for young people that inadvertently found a way to stick with them for the rest of their lives."
