This black and white deck (pen & ink; photography) features cards by Lizzie Brown, Tee Corinne, Liza Cowan, Alix Dobkin, P. K. Ellis, Sharon Fernleaf, Catherine Garden, mary Lee George, Paula Gottlieb, Brenda Gray, Kath Hartley, River Lightwomoon, Michelle Meizner, Ruth Mountaingrove, Carol Newhouse, Ngahuia Te Awekotuku, Billie Potts, Sudie Rakusin, Rayne, Ruth A. West, Jenna Weston, and Kate Zehnter.

The Fool is numbered both 0 and 22 and is labeled "Innocents."  I've scanned the first 3 cards:  I Witch, II Sybil, III Matriarch, plus the back of a card. 

Let me know if there's interest and I'll add a few more scans.

The deck was published in 1984 in Bearsville, N.Y., by Hecuba's Daughters, Inc.

Some cards have two versions (VI Lovers, XIV Art, XV Birth/The Horned One, 2 of Cups, 3 of Wands.  The deck contains 83 cards and the court cards are Child, Amazon, Companion and Queen.  Some photography was used.  Some cards include astrological symbols.  In the spirit of the deck, "Mars" was renamed "Kali." 

A number of contributors are listed as well as "special support"; these are listed on a single sheet with card meanings that came with the deck in lieu of a LWB. 

The deck included 3 blank cards which leads me to suspect that the intention may have been to offer users a chance at adding a card.
