This week my auspicious card deck, Mirrors of the Heart, has returned from the printer. It’s on thicker card stock with matte lamination. This time it’s black and white like the original linos. And, I’ve added a back to each card–a linocut of two birds. I’ve put the deck up in my etsy shop.

Here’s another linocut I made in the 1970s. Again, the theme has to do with an imaginary goddess. This time she doesn’t appear, but one of her masks does.

Birth linocut. Copyright 1983, Lily S. May. Signed with my original name.
This is a linocut I made in 1983 that was printed in a women’s health journal. The article was on midwifery. I hand carved and handprinted the image. I’ve put the linocut up for sale in my etsy shop.

Here’s another linocut I made when I was just starting out. It arose from my love of seeing images in clouds.
